Tim Tebow had another eventful week for the Single-A St. Lucie Mets, including a walk-off home run on Thursday night and a three-hit game on Monday.

 

Tebow hit his first game-ending home run since Nease High when he went the opposite way to give St. Lucie a 5-4 win in Game 2 of a doubleheader against Daytona. His first professional triple the next night pushed his hitting streak to 12 games. The hitting streak ended on Saturday.

On Monday afternoon, the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Florida had his first three-hit (double, two singles) game for St. Lucie, scored a run and drove in another in a 7-3 victory at Fort Myers.

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said last week that he doesn’t anticipate Tebow playing in New York after rosters expand in September, although the club is well out of contention in the NL East and would need to leapfrog several teams to get into the mix for even the second of the two wild-card spots.

A look at how Tebow has fared this week and this season:

At the plate: Tebow batted 7 for 25 (.280) this week with a home run, two RBI, four runs scored, one walk and six strikeouts. He is batting .308 since joining St. Lucie.

On the season: Counting his time in Columbia (S.C.) of the South Atlantic League, Tebow is 66 for 279 (.237) with six home runs, 35 RBI, 31 walks and 81 strikeouts. He has struck out just 12 in 20 games for St. Lucie, as opposed to 69 times in 64 games in Columbia.

In the field: Tebow didn’t do much with the glove this week. He was in the lineup at DH for the first four games of the week, played left field on Saturday in Fort Myers, was back at DH on Sunday and then center field on Monday.

The spectacle: When St. Lucie goes to Kissimmee for a series this weekend against the Florida Fire Frogs, they’re simply being called “Tebow tickets.” The box office there has been open extended hours for the past several days in anticipation of Tebow’s looming visit, which is probably a new thing for that Atlanta affiliate. The Fire Frogs’ average attendance this season: 796.

Up next: Tebow and the Mets start a three-game homestand against Jupiter on Tuesday. From there, it’s back on the road Friday to start the four-game series at Florida.
