Last night both B.J. and Justin Upton homered in the Braves’ victory over the Astros. That was the fourth time they have done that as teammates and that ties a record.
The co-record holders: Jason and Jeremy Giambi and Vladimir and Wilton Guerrero. It’s a shame George Brett and his brother Ken didn’t share an NL team, as Ken Brett could hit. He had four in one season back in 1973. Oh well, I suppose the Royals are happy they didn’t share teams any more than they did. Why Ozzie and Jose Canseco never managed to do this is one of the great genetics questions of all time.
As for the Uptons: assuming B.J. doesn’t get himself DFA’d sometime soon — not the safest assumption I’d ever make but one that’s probably reasonable — they have a decent chance to claim the record for their own. And even if they don’t, I feel like they will eventually set the record for brothers striking out three times in a game together, if they don’t own it already.
