Tebow ends 1st half of his 1st pro season with 3 strikeouts

But reports say the Mets are contemplating promoting Tebow for the second half of the season, possibly to the St. Luice Mets in the Class A Florida State League. Yet, he's continued to grind heading into the league's All-Star break this week.

Starter Thomas Szapucki (L, 1-1) allowed just three hits over six innings, but surrendered a pair of runs in the fifth.

The Charleston RiverDogs really love messing with Tim Tebow. It did not end on a high note. The Fireflies clinch the division and a playoff spot with a win on Sunday.

Tebow has had some highlights to add to his reel this season, as he's launched homers and made some awkward-looking diving catches in the outfield to help his team out.

If the main objective was to get inside their opponents heads, you could argue that it worked, at least somewhat, as Charleston took two out of three games from Tebow and the Fireflies.

AT THE PLATE: Tebow's average held steady at.224 after going 5 of 23 for the week at the plate.

Even Charleston's mascot got in on the Tebow gigging by wearing eyeblack and writing "John 3:16" on the eyeblack, a biblical passage synonymous with Tebow when he played for the Gators.

Tim Tebow didn't have the best at bat on Saturday night. Tebow swung at a pitch and missed prior to losing his grip on the bat and sending it into the second level of the stands.
