Is an initial home run in the 5th inning that puts a team ahead in the lead more valuable than an insurance home run in the 8th?

Depends on what you define as worth. Probability that you are going to win the game probably changes more with the 5th inning one.

If you are trying to judge a players worth, they are likely equivilent.
