Something was in the air Tuesday night: home runs by MLB aces.
First was Washington Nationals ace and reigning Cy Young winner Max Scherzer, who crushed a three-run home run against the Miami Marlins for his first career dinger. Next came Chicago Cubs ace and last year's Cy Young runner-up Jon Lester, who hit a two-run home run for his first one ever.
Beyond the long balls, the night didn't go too well for either starter. Scherzer left the game in the second inning due to neck spasms, while Lester lasted just four innings with three runs allowed.
