Max Scherzer and Rick Porcello were named the Cy Young winners of the National and American League, respectively, on Wednesday night.
Scherzer received 25 of the 30 first-place votes to become the Washington Nationals' first recipient of the award.
Scherzer, who won the AL Cy Young with the Detroit Tigers in 2013, becomes the sixth pitcher to win the award in both leagues, joining Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Roy Halladay, Roger Clemens and Gaylord Perry.
Porcello narrowly edged Justin Verlander for the honor. He won by a 137-132 margin despite only eight first-place votes to Verlander's 14.
Two Tampa, Florida-based writers -- Fred Goodall of The Associated Press and Bill Chastain of MLB.com -- left Verlander off their ballots entirely.
