The former NFL quarterback had been scuffling at the plate over the past week, but snapped a five-game hitless streak Saturday then added the opposite-field homer Sunday.

Entering play Sunday, Tebow was batting .220/.313/.331 in 118 at-bats over 34 games for Columbia in his first full season in the Mets' organization.
