The solo shot came in the eighth inning of an 8-3 win Monday at Progressive Field in Cleveland as the Royals reliever left an 84.5 mph slider over the plate and 28-year-old Bradley did not miss it.

“I’d say it’s a mix of emotions,” Bradley Zimmer said. “I don’t necessarily pride myself just because I hit that off of my brother. Hopefully, someday, we’ll be on the same team. I’d like to be on the same team. It was fun. It was a little, I guess, redemption. He got me the first time, so I had to make it even.”

Cleveland led 6-3 when the younger Zimmer stepped into the box. Statscast shows the solo shot sailed 106 feet above the field and traveled 107 mph.
