Estimated read time: Less than a minute

MIAMI — Francisco Lindor homered, doubled and drove in four runs to lead the New York Mets past the Miami Marlins 5-3. Mark Canha also went deep and Taijuan Walker pitched six-plus innings of three-run ball for the NL East leaders. Walker allowed eight hits, walked two and struck out five. All three runners scored on Lindor's bases-loaded double in the sixth that gave New York a 5-2 lead. Miami starter Sandy Alcantara, who entered with a 1.72 ERA, gave up five runs — four earned — and six hits in seven innings. The right-hander has gone at least seven innings in nine straight outings.
