Francisco Lindor homers using teammate’s bat

Francisco Lindor smile

Francisco Lindor homered in the Cleveland Indians’ win on Sunday night, and he did it with a little help from a friend.

Lindor was following Roberto Perez in the bottom of the sixth Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles after Perez had already homered. The Indians shortstop broke two bats in his at-bat, so he got a bat from teammate Abraham Almonte. Low and behold, Lindor homered using Almonte’s bat, making it back-to-back dingers for Cleveland:

The smile Lindor flashed towards the dugout likely was for Almonte over the bat.

One of the best shortstops in baseball, Lindor has been hot during the Indians’ 18-game winning streak. He’s up to eight home runs during the streak and has a 1.031 OPS in September. He’s so hot he can knock balls out of the park using any piece of lumber at this point.
