In the second inning of the Nationals’ tilt against the Marlins, Max Scherzer hit his first career home run: a three-run shot that put Washington up 4-zip early in the game.
While that should be exciting for the team and fans, and for Scherzer, it almost immediately turned sour when Scherzer abruptly pulled himself from the game in the bottom of the inning.
But isn’t that the best kind of friendship? When you can be sort of joking and sort of serious all in one moment? That’s when you know it’s real. And with these two guys, it’s real.
Mike Trout happened to also hit his 150th home run when he was 24 years and 295 days old. Which wouldn’t be so incredible if it weren’t for the fact that both players have long been compared to each other.
In fact, it seems that no major milestone can be reached by either player without a note of comparison about the other.
Trout did hit number 150 in less games than Harper, at game No. 701 of his career, while Harper reached it in game No. 759. Even so, what remains true is that both players remain outsized talents at a young age, and people we will be talking Cheap New York Giants Jerseys about to our children and grandchildren.
This is just another statistic that will serve as an entertaining Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping footnote for two very impressive careers.
