Scooter Gennett hit his first two home runs of the season Tuesday, with the second one being a walk-off shot in the 12th inning versus the Braves.

Gennett followed Joey Votto's blast in the fifth inning with a dinger of his own, and he followed Votto's walk in the 12th with a walk-off blast that just cleared the wall in right field. He also had an additional hit and RBI. It made up for a play in the top of the ninth inning which should've been an error on Gennett that resulted in the Braves tying the game. The walk-off hit was the first of Gennett's career.

Adrian Beltre left Tuesday night's game against the A's with an apparent injury.

Beltre hit an RBI single to right field in the bottom of the eighth inning but pulled up hurt at the first base bag and immediately headed for the clubhouse. There should be more information after the game. It looked like a left hamstring or calf injury.

Joey Votto smashed his first home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

The longball came off of Brandon McCarthy in the fifth inning and was the first of back-to-back shots by him and Scooter Gennett. It was the only hit for Votto in six trips to the plate, although he did draw a walk. Votto is somehow still slugging only .293 even after the homer.

Freddie Freeman swatted a pair of solo home runs Tuesday in Cincinnati.

The first dinger led off the seventh inning and broke up Tyler Mahle's no-hit bid. Freeman then led off the ninth with a longball off of Amir Garrett. The slugging first baseman doubled his home run total for the season with his big night and is now sporting a robust .304/.440/.557 batting line.

Blake Treinen exited an appearance Tuesday against the Rangers after taking a line drive off his lower right leg.

Treinen entered the game with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning, presumably to try for a five-out save. The first batter he faced, Shin-Soo Choo, hit a rocket right back to him that struck his right leg and went for an infield single. There should be an update soon from the Athletics. If it's a serious injury for Treinen, Ryan Buchter would probably make the most sense as a fill-in closer.

Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 and delivered a walkoff homer off Craig Kimbrel as the Blue Jays edged the Red Sox 4-3 in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Granderson drove in three of the Jays' four runs on the night. In nine starts in the leadoff spot this year, he's been good for three homers, 10 runs scored and 10 RBI. For some reason, Jays manager John Gibbons didn't want to use him there this year, but he was left with little choice after Devon Travis struggled both in the spring and in the early part of the season.

J.A. Happ fanned 10 while limiting the Red Sox to one run in seven innings on Tuesday.

Both Happ and opposing starter Rick Porcello benefitted from Dan Iassogna's very favorable strike zone, and both established new seasons highs for strikeouts (Porcello had nine). Happ also went without a walk for the first time this year. He would have done just fine even without the extra assistance, though. He's 3-1 with a 3.72 ERA after the no-decision in this one.
Apr 24 - 10:26 PM

Roberto Osuna took his first blown save after giving up two runs in the ninth Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Osuna gave up four hits and a walk in the inning and only escaped when Eduardo Nunez was thrown out at home on a longshot attempt at scoring the go-ahead run with two outs. The runs were the first he's allowed in 10 1/3 innings this year.
