Juan Uribe hitting star for Dodgers against Giants


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:56 am ET) Juan Uribe is a relative no-name in a star-studded Dodgers lineup, but he remained one of their best hitters in 2014 with a 3-for-5 performance in a Tuesday loss to San Francisco.

Uribe fell a triple short of the cycle. He opened the scoring with a home run off Tim Lincecum and followed with a double in the seventh and single in the 11th to raise his batting average to .379 on the season.


Brett Lawrie drives in five in big win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:20 am ET) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie had just one hit Tuesday against the Twins, but he made it count in a 9-3 win.

Lawrie went 1 for 4 in the game, but the lone hit broke the game open, as he clubbed a grand slam in the ninth inning. He drove in an additional run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly.

Lawrie is hitting just .132/.175/.302 through 14 games, albeit with three home runs and nine RBI.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:57 am ET) The Rangers got a big boost from an unexpected source Tuesday, as Kevin Kouzmanoff carried the team to a 5-0 win over the Mariners.

Kouzmanoff did much of the heavy lifting offensively while extending his season-opening hit streak to six games. He went 3 for 4 with three RBI, and each of his hits went for extra bases as he remains scorching hot to open the season.

Kouzmanoff is hitting .450/.522/.750 with five RBI and three runs scored in six games since being called up last week.
