It was the young shortstop's second longball of the season and pushed his RBI total up to 12. With a .315/.380/.438 batting line in his first 23 games, Lindor has certainly avoided a sophomore slump to this point.

He'll go back to hitting second when Michael Brantley (shoulder) returns from the disabled list.
