Pirates 4, Brewers 3 (F. 12) - Pittsburgh's first foray into extra innings ended well, as Andrew McCutchen blasted a walk-off shot in the 12th. John Axford earned himself another blown save, allowing an RBI double to Russell Martin in the eighth.
Padres 3, Orioles 2 - Jim Johnson's impressive save streak finally came to an end Tuesday night at 35. Two-out RBI singles in the ninth from Chris Denorfia and Everth Cabrera gave the Friars the comeback win.
Yankees 4, Mariners 3 - Felix Hernandez kept the Bombers' bats at bay, but the bullpen could not replicate his success. A three-run seventh spear-headed by a Robinson Cano double put the Yankees in front for good.
Blue Jays 10, Giants 6 - San Francisco was sloppy early, conceding six runs in the first on two errors. The run support allowed R.A. Dickey to coast from the get-go, allowing just two runs and fanning a season-high 10 batters in six innings. Melky Cabrera wrapped out four hits for the Jays.
Tigers 6, Astros 2 - Detroit played a little rope-a-dope with Houston on Tuesday, falling behind early and waiting until the fifth inning to come alive and deliver the inevitable knockout punch. The Tigers are now 6-0 against the Astros this year.
Rockies 9, Cubs 4 - Carlos Gonzalez notched the first five-hit game (including to homers) of his career, while Jeff Francis amassed seven strikeouts over six. Troy Tulowitzki had a three-hit night as well.
White Sox 4, Twins 2 - Adam Dunn is hitting under .150 on the year, but that doesn't stop him from swatting a home run every once in a while. Dunn went back-to-back with Dayan Viciedo in the second, and Tyler Flowers delivered the go-ahead double in the eighth.
Cardinals 10, Mets 4 - St. Louis' offense gave left-hander John Gast plenty of run support in his big-league debut. Dillon Gee was hit hard and early, giving way to the bullpen in the fifth only to watch them surrender long balls to Carlos Beltran and John Jay.
D'Backs 2, Braves 0 - Tyler Skaggs and Trevor Bauer got all the press as Arizona's top pitching prospects, but it's Patrick Corbin who's having the most success thus far. The southpaw earned his sixth victory of the year Tuesday, holding Atlanta to just four hits in seven scoreless frames.
Angels 6, Royals 2 - Jeremy Guthrie lost for the first time since August of last year, which means a lot less than it seems it should. Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, and Josh Hamilton all homered for the Halos, who actually looked like a quality team for once outside of the brief TOOTBLAN fest in the third.
Rangers 6, Athletics 5 (F. 10) - Half a year later, Texas finally snapped its four-game losing streak in Oakland. Mitch Moreland clobbered two big flies for the Rangers, the second of which proved to be the game-winner. Adrian Beltre also homered in extras.
Dodgers 2, Nats 0 - Take note, everyone, this Clayton Kershaw kid could be something special. With his 8⅔ inning, 11 K performance Tuesday, the southpaw now owns the lowest earned-run average (2.70) of any MLB pitcher in the Live Ball Era with a minimum of 1,000 innings pitched. Somewhat arbitrary but fascinating nonetheless!
