By hitting home runs in the 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on June 24, B.J. and Justin Upton of the Atlanta Braves tied the most number of homers by brothers who went yard in the same game with eight.


The Upton brothers are officially on the MLB record books as far as home runs are concerned. 

B.J. Upton and Justin Upton of the Atlanta Braves both homered in the 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on June 24, upping their home run total to eight in games they both went yard, per MLB.com's Mark Bowman: 

"Braves outfielders B.J. Upton and Justin Upton matched a Major League record when they both homered during Tuesday night's game against the Astros at Minute Maid Park. 

"The Upton brothers have now homered as teammates in the same game four times. This matches Vladimir and Wilton Guerrero and Jason and Jeremy Giambi for the most ever hit by a brother combo in Major League history. 

"The Upton borthers both homered in three of their first 20 games they played after being joined in Atlanta last year. Before Tuesday, the last time they had done so was during the second game of a doubleheader on Apri 23, 2013, at Coors field. 

"B.J. Upton got Tuesday's power surge rolling when he hit a one-out home run off Astros starter Scott Feldman in the third inning. His brother got into the act one inning later when he sent a two-out solo shot high over the left-center-field wall." 

The Uptons set the record in a game which marked the Braves' first time to play at Minute Maid Park in two years, notes Carroll Rogers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"The Braves hadn't played at Minute Maid Park since April of 2012 when Chipper Jones came off the disabled list to homer in his first game following knee surgery. On Tuesday night, the retired third baseman was flying to Texas but only for a visit to his hunting ranch in the southwest part of the state. 

"The Braves showed a little power in his absence, getting home runs from B.J. Upton and Justin Upton. It was the fourth time the brothers had both homered as teammates with the Braves, tying a major league record for brothers who are teammates. It was the first time they'd both homered since April 23, 2013 in Colorado. 

"The Braves jumped out to a 3-1 lead on the last-place team from the AL West, reeling from six losses in the past seven games, and made it stick with some tight rope work from Harang, who gave up only two runs in six innings. 

"Harang worked out of a first-and-third, nobody out jam in the third inning by coaxing a pair of groundballs, the second of which Andrelton Simmons and Tommy La Stella turned for a double play. 

"He allowed a solo home run to George Springer in the first and an RBI single to Jonathan Villar in the fourth. 

"As for filling in that Braves lineup, (manager Fredi) Gonzalez said he had a good feeling about it when he penciled in B.J. Upton in the leadoff spot for the first time this season. The rest of the Braves' fan base might have thought he was crazy, but his struggling center fielder needed two at-bats in the leadoff spot to give Gonzalez a little validation." 

 

B.J. Upton has 56 hits, seven home runs and 22 RBIs on a .203 batting average in 72 games while Justin Upton has amassed 70 hits, 15 home runs and 39 RBIs on a .271 batting average in 70 games through June 24, per ESPN stats
