There’s a first time for everything, even if you’re a pitcher in the National League who tends to be overlooked on the offensive side of the ball.
Defending NL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, and Cubs ace Jon Lester both hit their first career home runs tonight.

Both teams continue to explode offensively since the all-star break and both lead their respective divisions.
