Tim Tebow was doing a little bit of everything Thursday night.

The contentious New York Mets minor-league rookie came through for his Scottsdale Scorpions in Arizona Fall League action when he delivered his team's first hit against the Salt River Rafters.

To cap off a fruitful inning, an exhausted-looking Tebow was later brought home on a three-run homer by New York Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres:

With the single, Tebow is now 4-for-29 in the AFL.
