Wednesday's longest home runs

Ian Desmond's 447-foot blast off Reds reliever J.J. Hoover led the way on a day where Chase Headley and Starlin Castro had big games for the Yankees with a grand slam and walk-off home run, respectively.

Here's what should have the Royals worried: What if Trevor Bauer is figuring things out? Granted, the Rays struggle against right-handed pitchers, but after tossing a three-hit complete game with 10 K's, Bauer lowered his ERA to 3.20 and opponents are hitting just .225 against him.

When Corey Kluber is on, he's on

Kluber fired a three-hit shutout to beat the Rays 6-0, improving to 7-7 with a 3.59 ERA. He's been inconsistent this season, but if he can regain this Cy Young form on a regular basis, the Kluber/Danny Salazar/Carlos Carrasco trio will be the best in the AL, David Schoenfield writes. Five things we learned Tuesday

Kluber shuts things down at home

Corey Kluber shut out the Rays on Tuesday for his second shutout of the season at Progressive Field. Since the Indians began playing their home games there in 1994, only three other Cleveland pitchers have tossed multiple shutouts at home before July: Dennis Martinez (1995), CC Sabathia (2008) and Justin Masterson (2013), the Elias Sports Bureau reports.
