Byron Buxton scratched from Twins' lineup in Puerto Rico

Francisco Lindor delivers 2-run homer against Minnesota in Puerto Rico series debut

On Monday, shortstop Francisco Lindor, a native of Puerto Rico, hosted an event.

Everything about that video was special. Jose Vidro, even another baseman for the Expos, contributes each of Puerto Rican players with 3 home runs in Hiram Bithorn, while Javy Lopez, also a catcher for the Atlanta Braves, includes the second-most with 2 - both of which came in an Braves hit on April 17, 2003. It was high and suspenseful enough for the fans to build to a roar, only to go insane when the ball landed over the wall. The third time, however, was the charm, as Lindor yanked a 3-2 Odorizzi curve over the fence in right field for a two-run home run, breaking a scoreless tie.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - A home run, at his homecoming.

Puerto Rico still is recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Maria and last week, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said this series would be a great platform to show the reality of the destruction.

Say this for Francisco Lindor: He clearly has a flair for the dramatic. This series marks the first Major League Baseball regular-season games to be played at Hiram Bithorn Stadium since 2010, when the then-Florida Marlins took on the New York Mets in a three-game set. "To see the way the fans responded, and then to see how genuinely excited he was about it, it was pretty cool". Minnesota starter Jake Odorizzi (Highland High) gave up six hits and four runs, all of them coming across on homers, in five-plus innings.

Lindor later took a bow to acknowledge the crowd.

The Indians are now sitting at 8-6 and 2nd in the AL Central and also coming off a rough go in their last outing losing 8-0 after getting an early 4-0 lead. The recovery from the catastrophic storm has been the focus of this trip for the Twins and Indians.

Qaraqe went on to note that the issue of Palestinian prisoners had been referred to the International Criminal Court. The Hamas leaders who've led the demonstrations were explicit about this: "Palestine and Jerusalem belong to us".

"These are my people", Lindor said.

In the fifth, he made it happen.

No. 9 hitter Bradley Zimmer hit a two-out double and Lindor worked the count full.

It barely cleared the wall, but it was enough.

"I wish [Berrios] good luck, but I hope we win".

Lindor waved both arms at the crowd after crossing the plate, then came out for a curtain call as delirious fans shouted his name.

Jose Ramirez and Michael Brantley added solo homers to begin the sixth inning to bump the Indians' lead to 4-0 and chase Odorizzi from the game.
