Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price made the most of Tuesday's favorable matchup against the woeful Atlanta Braves, matching his career-high mark of 14 strikeouts as the Red Sox cruised to an 11-4 victory, per Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe.

Coming off an eight-run shelling in his previous outing, Boston's prized offseason acquisition overcame a shaky start to Tuesday's game, eventually holding Atlanta scoreless from the fifth through eighth innings after surrendering two runs through the first four frames.

Price held the Braves to two runs on six hits and two walks, ultimately exiting with a 6-2 lead after eight innings and 114 pitches, having struck out each of the last five batters he faced.

The Red Sox then added five runs in the top of the ninth to ensure the lefty improved to 3-0 in spite of his 5.76 ERA.

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen broke out of his slump in a big way Tuesday night, recording the second three-homer game of his career in a 9-4 win over the Colorado Rockies, per MLB Stat of the Day.

Taking advantage of the altitude at Coors Field, the 29-year-old superstar hit no-doubt solo home runs to left-center field in the first and second innings, getting the best of Rockies starting pitcher Christian Bergman both times.

Following a fourth-inning groundout, McCutchen made the most of his fourth at-bat against Bergman, sneaking a line-drive, three-run home run just barely over the right field fence to give the Pirates a commanding 7-3 lead.

McCutchen later had a chance to make it four homers, but he was retired by Rockies reliever Scott Oberg on a harmless groundout for the second out of the eighth inning.

Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano reached the 1,000-RBI milestone with a bang, driving in six runs during Tuesday's 11-1 win over the Houston Astros, per MLB Stat of the Day.

He entered the contest with 998 career RBI and needed just two more to become the 281st player (and 12th active player) with 1,000-plus.

After making outs in his first two at-bats, Cano stepped up to the plate against Astros ace Dallas Keuchel with the bases loaded and two outs in the fifth inning, and he promptly delivered a two-run single that gave him exactly 1,000 RBI, in addition to giving his team a 5-0 lead.

Not yet done, Seattle's star second baseman put the game away in the seventh inning with a grand slam to right-center field off of Astros relief pitcher Michael Feliz.

Detroit Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann has already made history during his inaugural season in Motown, becoming the first starting pitcher in 43 years to begin his tenure with a new team by throwing 20-plus scoreless innings, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info).

The last pitcher to accomplish the feat was Fred Norman, who was traded to the Cincinnati Reds before the 1973 season and subsequently introduced himself as a newfound member of the dominant Big Red Machine by logging 26 consecutive innings without allowing a run.

Zimmermann himself threw 24.1 innings for the Tigers before finally allowing his first run in the sixth frame of Monday's 7-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics. He could have extended his streak even longer had Tigers outfielder Tyler Collins not lost sight of a fly ball off the bat of Athletics shortstop Marcus Semien.

After Collins misplayed the fly, fellow outfielder Justin Upton went to scoop up the loose ball, only to have it drop out of his glove, which allowed Semien to reach third base.

Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols moved into sole possession of 13th place on the all-time home runs list during the third inning of Monday's 6-1 win over the Kansas City Royals, hitting career homer No. 564 to surpass Reggie Jackson (563), per MLB Stat of the Day.

With the Angels already holding a 3-0 lead, Pujols slugged a 1-1 offering from Royals pitcher Ian Kennedy over the center field fence to extend the early advantage to 4-0.

Not yet done for the night, the 36-year-old first baseman hit another solo home run off of Kennedy in the fifth inning, this time going to left field to give his Angels a 5-1 lead on the 565th home run of his career.

The run support proved to be more than enough, as Angels ace Garrett Richards struck out five batters and allowed just one unearned run in 6.2 innings to pick up his first win of a tough-luck season.

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Aledmys Diaz accomplished an interesting feat during Monday's 12-7 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, becoming the first player in baseball's modern era (since at least 1900) to own a batting average of .500 or better at least 50 at-bats into his career, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN.com).

The 25-year-old rookie entered Monday with 24 hits in 50 at-bats, after he recorded eight hits in 10 at-bats over the previous two games.

He then singled in each of his first two at-bats Monday night, bringing his average to an even .500 (26 hits in 52 at-bats) midway through the game.

Diaz did make outs in his final two at-bats, dropping his average to just .481, which would be the best mark in the majors if he had enough plate appearances to qualify.

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich became the only coach in NBA history to sweep nine playoff series when the Spurs toppled the Memphis Grizzlies 116-95 on Sunday, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Coming into Sunday, Popovich stood tied with the legendary Phil Jackson as the only coaches with eight sweeps in best-of-seven series. 

Coincidentally, the last time the Spurs brought out the brooms was in the 2013 Western Conference Finals against none other than the Grizzlies. 

Of course, the 2013 series was actually somewhat competitive, whereas the just-completed series saw the Spurs post a plus-88 scoring margin, which is the third-largest in league history for a four-game series, per NBA.com/stats.

San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan picked up the 155th playoff win of his career with Sunday's 116-95 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, tying former teammate Robert Horry for second place on the NBA's all-time playoff wins list for an individual player, per NBA.com/Stats.

Duncan only logged 19 minutes in Sunday's game as his Spurs completed a sweep of the injury-marred Grizzlies, contributing seven points, two rebounds, two assists and three blocks in the easy win.

While effective on the defensive end, the 40-year-old big man had a modest series from a statistical standpoint, averaging 5.8 points, 6.3 boards, 2.0 assists and 2.0 blocks over just 20.3 minutes per game.

In addition to co-owning the No. 2 spot on the all-time playoff wins list, Duncan passed Horry to take sole possession of second place on the playoff appearances list, with the former now having 245 to the latter's 244, per NBA History.

The Golden State Warriors set an NBA playoff record by making 21 three-point shots in Sunday's 121-94 win over the Houston Rockets in Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals, per NBA History on Twitter.

Entering Sunday's contest in Houston with a 2-1 series lead, the Warriors bounced back strong from a Game 3 loss, riding a dominant second half to a commanding 3-1 advantage in the series.

The first quarter ended in a 29-29 tie and the score was knotted at 56 entering the half, but Golden State then outscored Houston 41-20 in the third quarter, followed by a 24-18 advantage in the final frame.

Superstar point guard Stephen Curry made just one of his seven three-point attempts in his first game back from an ankle injury, yet the Warriors still managed a record-breaking performance thanks to a strong all-around team effort.
