ESPN Stats and Information  

With a home run, a double and the victory on Sunday, Rockies P Kyle Freeland became only the third rookie starting pitcher in the last 30 years to produce multiple extra-base hits, including a homer, and get the win on the mound in a single game (Elias Sports Bureau).

ESPN Stats and Information  

Sunday marked only the second time since 1955 that a pair of Cubs went 3-for-3 or better with multiple RBIs in the same game. Kris Bryant (3-for-3, two homers, two RBIs) and Willson Contreras (3-for-3, three RBIs) managed the feat after Andre Dawson (5-for-5, two RBIs) and Dave Martinez (3-for-3, three RBIs) did so in 1987 (Elias Sports Bureau).

ESPN Stats and Information  

Sunday marked the first time the Pirates have won 1-0 with the only run coming via a hit batsman with the bases loaded since the Cubs' Jimmy Lavender plunked Bill Hinchman on May 31, 1915 (Elias Sports Bureau).

ESPN Stats and Information  

For the second time in five weeks, the Yankees won despite striking out at least 17 times in a nine-inning game. No other team has multiple such wins in a single season since 1900. Sunday also marked the first time in Yankees history that multiple players (Matt Holliday and Aaron Judge) had at least four K's each in a nine-inning game (Elias Sports Bureau).

Mike Napoli's 452-foot home run was not only the deciding run in the Rangers' win, but it was comfortably the longest hit on Sunday. Mitch Moreland, Brandon Moss and a pair of Cubs players round out the list, with Kris Bryant making his second top-five appearance in four days.

Miguel Cabrera still not happy about whatever was said to him by Dyson on the field. He's talking to others in Tigers dugout about exchange.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is the first player to have 2 home runs and be hit by 2 pitches in the same game since Justin Ruggiano in 2013. He's the first to do so in a game in which he was perfect at the plate since Barry Bonds in 1991.

The Astros can't seem to find a way to beat the Indians this season, losing four of their five meetings and scoring 1.5 less runs per game than against all other opponents.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Reigning MVPs Mike Trout and Kris Bryant are both outperforming themselves, overall, from the first two months of last season, but Trout's numbers are outshining Bryant so far.
