Francisco Lindor has night full of MLB 'firsts'

BY foxsports • June 17, 2015


Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor started his first Major League game on Tuesday night, but that was just the beginning of his "firsts" in a Major League uniform.

After lining-out in the first and striking out in his second at-bat, Lindor singled to center in the fifth against Chicago Cubs starter Jake Arrieta driving in Jason Kipnis for his first Major League RBI.

He would go on to steal his first base and score his first run off the bat of Carlos Santana in the ninth. His single in the ninth also provided his first multi-hit game in the Majors.

Lindor's first hit came on Sunday against the Tigers. He is now 3-for-6 in his first two games with the Indians.
