Francisco Lindor Powers Mets to Sweep of Reds, 6th Straight Win

The Mets get today’s baseball spotlight with a 10-2 shellacking against the Reds to complete the series sweep at Citi Field. Francisco Lindor has come on strong late in the season by scoring a run in 13 consecutive games, and that’s a beautiful sight for Mets fans. Lindor sparked the offense on Wednesday with his 20th home run. He also added two RBIs to give him 81 on the season, tying the franchise record for RBIs by a shortstop. With the Mets’ latest win streak at six, they’re 20-6 in the last month and catching fire at the right time.
