“Sean Manaea Shocking Decision: MLB Star Announces Retirement at the Peak of His Career”

CINCINNATI — Francisco Lindor hit a home run and ended an 0-for-24 skid as the New York Mets beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 on Sunday.
Lindor was 1 for 31 this season coming into the game. It was the third-longest hitless streak of his career, but Lindor felt like a breakthrough was coming.

“Guess I felt like I’ve had good at-bats,” Lindor said. “The day before I had good at-bats. It’s just one of those things where they just need to go through. As soon as I hit the ball, I put my head down. I kind of looked up, and it was like, ‘Thank God’. It felt good to contribute and help the team win.”

CINCINNATI — Francisco Lindor hit a home run and ended an 0-for-24 skid as the New York Mets beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 on Sunday.

Lindor was 1 for 31 this season coming into the game. It was the third-longest hitless streak of his career, but Lindor felt like a breakthrough was coming.

“Guess I felt like I’ve had good at-bats,” Lindor said. “The day before I had good at-bats. It’s just one of those things where they just need to go through. As soon as I hit the ball, I put my head down. I kind of looked up, and it was like, ‘Thank God’. It felt good to contribute and help the team win.”

Mets manager Carlos Mendoza knew at some point, Lindor would “get going.”

“He’s a good hitter, a special player,” Mendoza said. “Good to see him get a couple hits today.”

Sean Manaea (1-0) had another strong outing for the Mets. He lowered his earned-run average to 0.82 after allowing one run and three hits in five innings. He walked two and struck out six.

It is at least a possibility after two solid starts, Manaea allowing one run in five innings of Sunday’s 3-1 win over the Reds at Great American Ball Park.

“All the work I’ve been putting in, everything — just feeling good and just trying to be consistent. At the end of the day that’s all I can ask for,” Manaea said after striking out six and allowing three hits and two walks. “Everything’s feeling good right now, so just keep doing that.”

The work was needed after Manaea pitched his way out of the Giants’ rotation early last season.
