Tim Tebow Has an 8-Game Hit Streak

Don’t look now, but Tim Tebow may have figured out this whole baseball thing. Tebow has hit safely in 11 of his last 13 games for the Mets High-A ball minor league affiliate at Port St. Lucie. He also currently has an eight game win streak going.

HIGHLIGHTS: Tebow was clutch at the plate this week, with a two-out, three-run double against Fort Myers on Monday, a home run (part of a back-to-back) to help the Mets beat Charlotte on Wednesday, and he had an RBI double and eventually scored in the Mets’ three-run fourth inning that carried them to a 3-2 win over Jupiter on Saturday.
