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.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Kyle Schwarber's home run -- which left Wrigley Field and landed on Sheffield Avenue -- easily paced the league on Tuesday. Michael Conforto and Kendrys Morales were next, with Bryce Harper and Charlie Blackmon not too far behind.

Mike Trout: HR, BB; 15th HR this season in 42nd game....previous quickest to 15 HR in a season was 56 games, 2015

If Clayton Kershaw never pitched another game, he would (should) be 1st-ballot, unanimous HOFer, and strong case could be made for best ever
