Watch Francisco Lindor send the crowd (and his mom) into a frenzy with a Puerto Rico Series homer
The Twins and Indians were locked in a scoreless tie in the first game of the Puerto Rico Series at Hiram Bithorn Stadium on Tuesday night, as both Jake Odorizzi and Corey Kluber traded zeros for the first four frames.
Although, native son Francisco Lindor came oh-so-close to a leadoff homer in the first:
In the fifth, everything changed ... and in a manner that Lindor will no doubt remember forever.
Playing in front of thousands of fans as well as his mother, Maria Serrano, the Indians' shortstop cracked a two-run homer to right field that set everybody into a frenzy. It'll give you chills:
That's special, right there.
MLB.com's Jon Morosi interviewed Lindor's mother, Maria, in the stands after the home run:

Wow. Take a bow, Francisco.
Paced by Lindor's homer, Cleveland won the game, 6-1.
