Jose Fernandez pitches final start, hits first homer and (almost) incites first brawl -- all in one game

Jose Fernandez had a busy night. The Marlins right-hander tossed the final start of his spectacular rookie season Monday against Atlanta, hitting his first Major League homer in the sixth off Mike Minor. As the ball rocketed away, Fernandez took an extra moment to admire it.

The Braves didn't take too kindly to that.
