Padres starter Andrew Cashner found himself in a familiar spot during the early stages of Tuesday night's 6-3 victory over the Rockies at Petco Park.
Leonys Martin isn't supposed to be a power hitter. Nor does he have a history of faring well against A's ace Sonny Gray. So of course it was Martin who launched a two-run homer off Gray in the third inning on Tuesday to kickstart Seattle's 8-2 victory over Oakland.
Brett Wallace's big night helped the Padres overcome a shaky start Tuesday, as San Diego scored six unanswered runs to rally for a 6-3 win and another series victory over the Rockies at Petco Park.
Jake Arrieta walked the Pirates' first two hitters Tuesday night, and that was about as bad as it got for the Cubs. Returning to PNC Park for the first time since the National League Wild Card Game, Arrieta threw seven scoreless innings and improved to 6-0 in the Cubs' 7-1 win over the Pirates.
Jose Quintana's scoreless-innings streak came to an end during the White Sox 4-1 victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday night at U.S. Cellular Field. But the southpaw still was impressive enough to improve for his fourth win by yielding the lone run over eight innings.
Aaron Nola tossed another gem on Tuesday against the Cardinals, throwing seven scoreless innings while running his scoreless-innings streak to 20 innings.
After they were rained out to begin the week, Class A Advanced Salem continued their winning ways Tuesday with a doubleheader road sweep of Carolina as Yoan Moncada and Andrew Benintendi paced Salem's offense.
George Springer homered for the second game in a row, hitting a two-run shot over the railroad tracks high above Minute Maid Park's left field to cap a three-run fourth inning and send the Astros to a 6-4 win over the Twins on Tuesday night.
Justin Smoak single-handedly stole a game away from the Rangers as he hit a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth and added a two-run shot in the 10th inning of Toronto's 3-1 victory on Tuesday night at Rogers Centre.
Ryan Howard's home run and seven scoreless innings from Aaron Nola were enough for a 1-0 Phillies' victory over the Cardinals.
Jose Abreu has doubled his batting average over his recent hot streak, but even amid a first-month offensive funk, he had a reason for not being too upset.
The Marlins brought some of their road-trip magic home with them on Tuesday, as they rallied from three down to claim a 7-4 win over the D-backs at Marlins Park. Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich each belted home runs, and Ichiro Suzuki's pinch-hit, two-run single gave them the lead in the sixth inning.
Called up by the Brewers to help a sagging starting rotation, Junior Guerra pitched six respectable innings for his first Major League victory in his first Major League start, a 5-4 Milwaukee triumph over the Angels on Tuesday night at Miller Park.
Carlos Gomez returned on Tuesday after missing three games, and he also returned to being Carlos Gomez, going 2-for-3 with a run scored in the Astros' win over the Twins.

In a game where runs were at a premium, Justin Smoak's first two home runs of the season couldn't have come at a better time. Trailing throughout Tuesday night's game against the Texas Rangers following Rougned Odor's first career lead-off home run on Marco Estrada's second pitch of the game, the Toronto Blue Jays first baseman stepped up in the bottom of the ninth. ''It was a tight game there until the end and being able to pull it off there in the end was good,'' Smoak said of his first career walk-off home run and Toronto's first extra-innings win of the season.
