Francisco Lindor's 30th home run of the season was an electric one, as it arced into the Progressive Field bleachers in left field to give the Cleveland Indians an early lead in what could end up being the club's 20th consecutive victory.

Lindor is only the third shortstop in MLB history to record a campaign with 30 or more home runs before turning 24, joining Alex Rodriguez and Nomar Garciaparra in the elite group. Lindor leads all shortstops in home runs, with four players tied in a distant second place with 21 dingers apiece.

Amid a historic stretch, the 23-year-old Lindor has posted a 1.204 OPS since the Indians' streak began back on Aug. 24.
