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.

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.

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.

The Yankees lost to the Royals, 6-2. Kansas City couldn't solve Yankees rookie starter Jordan Montgomery, as they scored their only run on a Lorenzo Cain solo shot in Montgomery's 6 2/3 innings. But then against Yankee relievers Adam Warren, Jonathan Holder and Chasen Shreve, Kansas City was even more homer happy. Each of the Yankee relievers gave up a homers, as Jorge Bonifacio, Whit Merrifield and Mike Moustakas all went deep.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Ervin Santana throws a two-hit shutout at Camden Yards to lower his ERA to 1.80, the first pitcher with a complete-game shutout of the Orioles at Camden since Carl Pavano in 2010. Santana has now allowed two or fewer hits in five of his 10 starts and batters are hitting .134 against him.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

After yet another opponent was caught stealing tonight Jon Lester will undoubtedly move up the ranks among qualified pitchers as only 6 of 14 base runners this season have been successful off him. Thanks to catcher Willson Contreras, that caught stealing pct (57 percent) ranked Lester seventh in the NL and that was before Eduardo Nunez of the Giants was thrown out in the 5th inning.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The Nats bats found their groove again in a 10-1 bludgeoning of the Mariners that featured four homers, including a pair by Anthony Rendon and back-to-back jacks by Jayson Werth and Bryce Harper. After scoring double-digit runs six times in April, this was the very time in May that Washington has gone for 10-plus.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

The most impressive part of Joe Ross' performance against the Mariners tonight: Against left-handers, he afforded just two hits and no walks while striking out four, generating seven swings and misses and getting seven ground balls in their 14 trips to the plate. Entering tonight, he had allowed .306/.374/.469 rates to lefties in his career. Ross has surely earned himself another start for the Nationals, and he should earn a spot on your fantasy roster for it as well.

Twins starter Ervin Santana is the only pitcher in MLB with multiple shutouts this season.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Jorge Bonifacio just hit an opposite two-run field homer off Adam Warren to make it 3-2 Royals in the 7th.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Rookie Jordan Montgomery leaves to a nice hand after his best outing of his young career. Montgomery allowed just one run on two hits, striking out six and walking none in 6 2/3 innings. The Yankees are beating the Royals, 2-1 in the 7th. Aaron Judge is 0-for-2 with a walk.

This is the 5th time this season and 30th time in their careers that Mike Trout and Bryce Harper homered on the same day.

Austin Hedges made one of the best catches of a foul pop that you will see this year. Covered lots of ground, headlong dive.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

According to ESPN Stats and Info, Kyle Schwarber's first inning HR off of Johnny Cueto traveled 460 ft, the longest of his (regular season) career and the furthest off Cueto since tracking began in 2009. Meanwhile Jason Heyward's second inning blast was his fourth of the year. He didn't hit his fourth until June 11 last season.
