Bryce Harper, Mike Trout hit 150th career home run on exact age

Harper led off the fourth against the Miami Marlins with his 29th home run, a drive deep into the right-field seats. However, incredibly, Mike Trout hit his 150th homer at the exact same age (9,061 days) as Harper. The two All-Stars traded home runs in the first inning of the game in Anaheim. He came back in the sixth to hit a game-tying solo home run.

Only two active players have reached the milestone at a younger age: Albert Pujols (24 years, 212 days) and Giancarlo Stanton (24 years, 290 days).

Harper and Trout will always be linked as two of the best-hitting outfielders of their generation, but Monday's quirky coincidence took their career parallels to a whole new level.

While the Nationals were in town to face the Cubs over the weekend, Jessica Bryant posted a photo of her and Kayla Harper to social media with the captions "Fans want it ..." Stanton is on pace for 54 home runs on the season. Cincinnati won Monday's game 11-3 as Votto finished the night 2 for 3 with a walk and three RBIs. The Reds, however, remain in last place in the National League Central, with a 46-66 record.

Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings in Pittsburgh's 3-0 win over the Tigers. Kennedy allowed seven runs, six earned, off six hits and four walks over six innings in the 11-3 loss. He's hitting.291 with 22 home runs and can still make stellar plays in the field, like his diving catch in the fifth inning of Monday's win to rob Tigers counterpart Mikie Mahtook of a hit.

The Cardinals are still chasing the Milwaukee Brewers and Cubs in the NL Central and the Royals are in the thick of the AL wild-card hunt. Vance Worley, who's 1-2 with a 5.31 ERA and 1.40 WHIP, will be toeing the rubber for Miami.
