Eli Tintor, minor league vagabond and ex-Twin, improved his .257 career batting average on Sunday morning, getting two hits in two at-bats after a burglar broke into his Duluth home.
Tintor and a friend were watching a movie at about 3:30 a.m. when Stephan Leland ripped the screen from a living room window. Tintor grabbed a wooden Louisville Slugger and made his way to the front door, his buddy following behind.
The two then fought on the floor.
Police arrested him later that day. Leland is charged with first-degree attempted burglary and second-degree assault.
