Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in the Indians win over the Blue Jays Saturday in Game 2 of the ALCS.

Fueled by his mom’s homemade lasagna, Lindor has had a postseason for the ages. One night after tallying a game-winning two-run homer, Lindor was back at it with two hits including an RBI single that broke a 1-1 tie in the third inning. He also made a fine defensive play to rob Jose Bautista of a base hit. The 22-year-old has hit .500 with three RBI over his last three games. The Indians are now two wins away from reaching the World Series. They haven’t been there since 1997.

Francisco Lindor blasted a two-run homer in the sixth inning on Friday, powering the Indians to a 2-0 victory over the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the ALCS.

In what had been an exceptional pitcher's duel between Corey Kluber and Marco Estrada, Lindor finally broke through with a towering two-run drive to right field that plated Jason Kipnis who had drawn a one-out walk. Lindor also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4. He's hitting .313/.313/.750 with a pair of long balls and three RBI through his first four postseason games. With his home run, Lindor became the second youngest player (Derek Jeter) to homer in the history of the ALCS.

Francisco Lindor busted out a slump by going 2-for-2 with a three-run homer, a walk, and two runs scored in a 7-2 win over the Royals.

Lindor snapped an 0-for-29 hitless streak with a double off Yordano Ventura in a four-run third inning. He celebrated the double and Ventura apparently didn’t like it, as he hit him with a pitch in his next at-bat in the fifth inning. Lindor responded by slugging a three-run homer off Brian Flynn in his next at-bat. Even with the quiet September, the 22-year-old shortstop is batting .303/.359/.436 with 15 homers, 75 RBI, and 19 steals.

Francisco Lindor went 0-for-4 and drove in the Indians' only run with a sacrifice fly in an extra-inning loss to the Twins on Saturday.

He produced the run in the first inning and then his team was shut out for the next 11 frames before losing in the 12th. Lindor couldn't do much at the plate tonight but is batting .320/.365/.456 with 14 home runs, 70 RBI, 91 runs scored and 17 steals on the season. He is still only 22 years old.

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-4 -- all singles -- scored two runs and stole a base versus the Astros on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old is having a highly productive fantasy season. He has a .320 batting average with 14 homers, 66 RBI, 89 runs and 17 stolen bases. He is one of the best among a stellar crop of young shortstops in the majors right now.

Francisco Lindor went 4-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored as the Indians topped the Marlins 8-3 on Saturday.

Lindor had a pair of doubles in the game, but it was a two-run single in the sixth inning that did the most damage. The 22-year-old has four consecutive multi-hit games to run his overall line to .319/.363/.461. Lindor has 14 homers, 66 RBI, 86 runs scored and 16 steals in a year that could garner him some MVP votes in the American League.

Francisco Lindor is absent from the Indians' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Athletics.

Francisco Lindor went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

Lindor cranked a two-run shot off Gio Gonzalez in the third inning. That one drew the Indians to within 4-3. They would tie it up later in the frame courtesy of an RBI double by Jose Ramirez, but the Nationals returned the volley when they retook the lead (this time for good) in the fifth inning. For his part, Lindor is slashing .305/.354/.453 with 14 homers, 57 RBI and 14 steals over 430 at-bats. The promising youngster won't turn 23 until November.

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer Thursday against the Twins.

As high as we were on Lindor going into the year, we still weren't sure he was going to be able to match his power production from his rookie season. Here he is, though, with 13 homers in 408 at-bats after hitting 12 in 390 at-bats last year. His slugging percentage is still a bit worse, in part because he has just one triple this year after hitting four as a rookie, but he's largely met expectations.

Francisco Lindor finished 3-for-5 including a game-winning, walk-off single as the Indians came back to beat the Nationals 7-6 on Tuesday.

With the bases loaded and one out, Lindor hit an Oliver Perez pitch just past a drawn-in infield to give the Indians the victory. It capped a good night at the dish for the 22-year-old, who now has multiple hits in four of his last six games. Lindor has been one of the most productive all-around hitters in the league to this point, batting .307/.362/.460 with 12 homers, 50 RBI, 68 runs scored and 13 steals.
Tue, Jul 26, 2016 11:25:00 PM

Francisco Lindor stroked two singles in four at-bats and scored a run on Saturday.

He is batting .304 with 12 homers, 68 runs, 49 RBI and 13 steals. Lindor has hit better in the majors than he ever did in the minors. He has been a very productive fantasy shortstop the last two seasons and is still only 22 years old.
