Nasty collision between Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig to end the top of the 10th, with Pederson taking an elbow to the head as Puig made the catch. Chris Turner hit for Pederson in the bottom of the inning, but Puig returns to right field for the 11th.

Yes, that's Fernando Rodney with his seventh consecutive scoreless appearance for the Diamondbacks following two blown saves in which he allowed eight runs. He tossed a 1-2-3 ninth as Arizona has won seven of eight and 10 of 13. Fire the arrow, big guy.

You can't fault Dave Roberts for leaving in Clayton Kershaw to close out a dominant 1-0 shutout, even if he did have Kenley Jansen in the bullpen. He was cruising with a two-hitter, but then made one mistake, a wild pitch that allowed a hustling Randal Grichuk to score all the way from second base to tie the game.

The roof at Chase Field might have been imperiled by this towering shot by White Sox 1B Jose Abreu on Tuesday night off D-backs reliever Jorge De La Rosa in the eighth inning. It was Abreu's ninth home run of the season and fourth in his last nine games.

The eighth home run of the season for Blue Jays 1B Kendrys Morales was another no-doubter. He sent a 92-mph fastball from Brewers right-hander Jimmy Nelson off the batter's eye at Miller Park.

Joe Maddon described Kyle Schwarber's 460 ft home run onto Sheffield ave on Tuesday in Star Trek terms: "The Enterprise would fly by the screen and get really small. It (the ball) had that Enterprise-esque look to it. It was there and then it was gone."

Nationals RF Bryce Harper smashed another tape-measure shot on Tuesday night vs. the Mariners for his 14th home run of the season. When Harper dropped from 42 homers in 2015 to 24 last year, he hit his 14th on June 16.

Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal launched a 3-2 pitch left over the center of the plate by Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn in the first inning on Tuesday night. Grandal homered twice on Opening Day, and this was only his third since then.

Indians 1B Edwin Encarnacion yanked two home runs down the left-field line on Tuesday night off Reds left-hander Amir Garrett for his first multi-homer game of the season. He had four last year with the Blue Jays.

Angels CF Mike Trout homered again on Tuesday, giving him 15 this season. Two seasons ago, he reached 15 HR in 56 games. That stood as his quickest route to 15 home runs ... until 2017.

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas homered for the 11th time and is already halfway to his career high of 22 from 2015. Though the Moustakas homer at Yankee Stadium was his third already off a lefty, he's really struggled against lefties this season. Of greater concern are the drops in walk and contact rate. If Moustakas doesn't improve there he's unlikely to match his strong 2015 numbers so be careful in investing.

Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon has hit seven home runs this season yet Tuesday night's two-HR game vs. the Mariners is his second multi-homer game of 2017. He hit three on April 30 against the Mets.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

It's been an odd offensive season for Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon. He homered twice Tuesday and knocked in five and now has produced five of his seven homers and 15 of his 28 RBI in only two games. In the other 40 games he's been pretty quiet! For those in roto leagues this is no big deal. Trust Rendon ends up with similar numbers as last year, as his team is certainly strong offensively, but the ride could be a bit more inconsistent.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

The Twins' Brian Dozier began play outside the top-10 second basemen on the Player Rater and contributed his sixth home run in the win at Baltimore, and first in 11 games. But how can anyone ever worry about Dozier after last year, when he smacked 37 home runs from June 1 on? That's not evidence he'll do so again, but I'm sure more likely to trade for him than to deal him away. Any homer can be the start of something big.

The Cubs beat the Giants 4-1 behind Jon Lester's complete game, the first of the season for the team -- and first since he shutout the Giants last Sept. Lester was aided by 3 home runs including a 460 ft shot by Kyle Schwarber in the first inning. Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward also homered but Lester was the story. He gave up 4 hits and struck out 10 batters including 2 in the final inning. He was fantastic in a game that lasted just 2:05.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Cubs LF Kyle Schwarber has hit 28 home runs in his young major league career, regular season and postseason. His first-inning blast on Tuesday night off a 3-2 pitch by the Giants' Johnny Cueto traveled the farthest, clearing Wrigley Field's right-field bleachers.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Patience was certainly a virtue for Mets LF Michael Conforto leading off the first inning at home on Tuesday night. He sent the 10th pitch from Padres RHP Jhoulys Chacin deep to right to tie his career high in home runs in only 40 games.
