Here are the top GIFs from Tuesday's games, courtesy of @MLBGifs.
1. On bended knee
Adrian Beltre's methods are a bit unconventional, but as this home run showed, they work pretty darn well.

2. I've got a pretty good arm too
People may have watched the Angels-Dodgers game to see Mike Trout face Clayton Kershaw's arm, but on this play, it was Kershaw testing Trout's arm. That didn't work out too well for the Dodgers pitcher, who had no such trouble on the mound in a 5-1 win.

3. Double the fun
This pitch from the Indians' Danny Salazar somehow hit Brandon Phillips' bat twice. The result? A ball with some crazy spin that helped the Reds' second baseman pick up a hit.

4. The ultimate four-point play
The A's Khris Davis might not have showed Steph Curry's form on this jump shot, but Davis did cap off a three-homer game with a walk-off grand slam to beat the Rangers.

5. My Cousin Vinny
Nasty pitches like this from the Phillies' Vince Velasquez helped him strike out 10 Marlins in only five innings of work.

6. Listen closely
"Are you talking to me?" wondered this young Cubs fan watching his team take on the Brewers at Miller Park.
