Francisco Lindor picked the perfect moment to hush the talk about his slump.
In a ninth inning in which everything worked Thursday night, it was Lindor’s two-run homer off James Norwood that helped the Mets start believing.
They scored five additional runs after that homer as they rallied with seven runs in the ninth inning to beat the Phillies 8-7 at Citizens Bank Park.
Lindor was 5-for-42 entering that at-bat, dating to April 25 in St. Louis.
“You guys love talking about numbers. I hate talking about numbers,” the shortstop said. “I need every hit possible. I need every hot out there and I got it.”
