There are few surer things in baseball than Lance McCullers pitching well at Minute Maid Park. In AL history, only the White Sox's Doc White (32 starts from 1905-06) has had a longer streak of home starts with three or fewer earned runs allowed (Elias Sports Bureau).

After knocking four runs in on Tuesday vs. the Phillies, Charlie Blackmon has 40 RBIs -- all from the leadoff spot -- in the Rockies' first 47 games of the season. That's the fewest team games to accumulate 40 RBIs from the leadoff spot since MLB began recording RBIs in 1920, per the Elias Sports Bureau. Ian Kinsler (2009) and Mookie Betts (2016) shared the previous record (52 games). (Photo: Ron Chenoy/USA TODAY Sports)

Matt Harvey's effectiveness in the strike zone Tuesday showed major progress over his most recent starts, in which opponents lit him up on pitches over the plate.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Ervin Santana has a 1.80 ERA in 10 starts this season. Since the franchise moved to Minnesota in 1961, only two Twins pitchers had an ERA that low through their first 10 starts of a season: Francisco Liriano (1.36 in 2006) and Scott Erickson (1.63 in 1991), according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Including last night opposite Clayton Kershaw, Lance Lynn has been involved in each of the last three games in which both starting pitchers threw at least eight innings and allowed no more than three hits, per the Elias Sports Bureau. One came against Jordan Zimmermann on June 13, 2014; the other was a duel with Johnny Cueto on Sept. 11, 2014. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)

Michael Conforto led off Wednesday's game vs. the Padres with a home run and delivered a two-run single later in the frame.

Joe Ross has had no shortage of run support from the Nationals' offense. In his first four starts this season, the Nats have outscored opponents 62-22.

Twins 1B Joe Mauer and C Jason Castro are both out of the starting lineup Wednesday vs. the Orioles. Kennys Vargas gets the nod at first, and Chris Gimenez will catch.

ESPN Staff  

Brewers OF Ryan Braun isn't in the starting lineup Wednesday vs. the Blue Jays. Braun has gone 0-for-8 since returning from the disabled list with a left calf strain on May 21.

ESPN Stats and Information  

With another gem Tuesday, Clayton Kershaw joined Randy Johnson, Curt Schilling and Roger Clemens as the only pitchers with at least 20 games with 10-plus strikeouts and no walks since 1893. However, it was the seventh time Kershaw did so without getting the win, trailing only Johnson, who had nine such games (Elias Sports Bureau).

ESPN Stats and Information  

Don't look now, but Ervin Santana is off to one of the hottest starts we've ever seen. It's been more than 60 years since a pitcher shut down batters with such regularity through his first 10 starts of a season.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Through 20 games at Atlanta's new ballpark, no home run has been shorter than Jordy Mercer's 345-footer on Tuesday, the second-shortest of any MLB homer on the day. That said, it would have gotten out in all but four big league parks.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Few players can scrape the sky with home runs like Mike Moustakas. After hitting what was then the second-highest homer (129-foot apex) of his career last week, Moustakas set a career-high apex in Tuesday's win.
