Cleveland's Bradley Zimmer hits 408-foot home run against older brother

Cleveland outfielder Bradley Zimmer has earned bragging rights at least for the time being when he gets together with his older brother, Kyle, at the family's holiday functions. 

Kyle Zimmer, 30, pitches for Kansas City Royals, and when the two teams met up on Monday, the two faced each other for the third time this season. Those other at-bats ended in a strikeout and a walk.

But Bradley Zimmer, 28, got the best of his brother in the eighth inning on Monday as he took Kyle's 85 mph slider and deposited 408 feet into the right-field seats. Cleveland went on to win 8-3.

"I’d say it’s a mix of emotions," Bradley Zimmer said to MLB.com. "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."

It's only the fourth time that a brother hit a home run against another brother in the modern era (since 1900) and the first time it has happened since 1975.
