The 21-year-old Fernandez (12-6, 2.19 ERA), one of the top candidates for the NL Rookie of the Year award, not only beat the first-place Braves, he hit his first major league home run in the win.

His first major league home run was a memorable one, but one he wish he could take back — at least his actions. Marlins rookie pitching phenom Jose Fernandez hit a ball out of the park off Braves starter Mike Minor in the 6th inning of Wednesday’s Marlins game against the Braves. There wasn’t much doubt, either–it was a towering shot to left center. The Braves didn’t like what he did next.
