WATCH: Tim Tebow launches first home run at triple-A level
It has been a rough year for former Florida QB Tim Tebow at the triple-A level in the New York Mets’ organization.
Entering Sunday’s game, Tebow had only managed 16 hits and 10 RBI in 104 at-bats. That’s good for a measly .154 batting average.
As you can see below, though, he did manage to break out of his power slump, launching a home run against the Columbus Clippers in what turned out to be an 8-2 loss for the Syracuse Mets:

That was Tebow’s only hit of the day, as he finished 1-for-4 with two strikeouts. Still, it was enough to raise his batting average to .157.
Will this be what he needs to snap out of his slump and start stringing together some multi-hit games? The Mets will travel to Lehigh Valley for a three-game series starting Tuesday.
