Sundays are Tim Tebow's day.
After a few seasons in the NFL, the Mets farmhand put on a show in his first Sunday as a Minor Leaguer. Tebow slugged his second home run in three games as he went 1-for-3 with three RBIs, two runs scored and a walk in Class A Columbia's 6-0 win over Augusta at Spirit Communications Park.

In the fifth inning, Tebow ripped the first offering from reliever Jose Morel over the right-field fence and into the glove of an excited fan, bringing in Dash Winningham and Anthony Dimino.
The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner worked a full count in the second and converted it into his first walk. Tebow then came around to score on a single by Ali Sanchez. The left fielder grounded out to second in the third and struck out in his final at-bat in the seventh.
After signing with the Mets in the fall, Tebow started his Minor League career with a bang. The University of Florida product slugged an opposite-field home run in his first at-bat on Opening Day. He added a single Friday before taking Saturday off.
Columbia starter Merandy Gonzalez (1-0) was the benefactor of Tebow's second blast. The Mets' No. 14 prospect allowed three hits and a walk while striking out six over six innings in his season debut.
