Although the Mariners and Rockies lost on Tuesday, four of the six longest home runs were hit by their players.

On Tuesday, Nationals SS Trea Turner became the eighth player in MLB history to drive in seven or more runs in a game while hitting for the cycle. Since 1995, players have hit for the cycle at Coors Field -- the site of Turner's feat -- more than twice as often as they have at any other ballpark.

Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger says he always dreamed of a home run for his first major league hit, but he will gladly take the infield single he produced in his major league debut.

It's a fine line between hero and goat, as Dodgers 3B Justin Turner explains. He was picked off second base to end Monday's game against the Giants, but his aggressive base running Tuesday scored a run and put his team on top to stay.

Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw says he did not have his best stuff in Tuesday's victory over the rival Giants, but did not blame the sore calf that was hit by a comebacker in the first inning.

Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw fought through cramping in his calf early Tuesday in defeating the Giants. The calf issue started when he took a comebacker off his leg against the first batter of the game.

Just a random Tuesday night that may turn out to be the craziest night of the season. We had maybe the greatest slide ever, another Eric Thames homer, a cycle, a 40-hit game, a Dallas Keuchel gem, a Clayton Kershaw gem, Mike Trout game-tying home run in extra innings and, sadly, a King Felix dead arm.
