Upton Brothers Go Back-to-Back

When Justin and B.J. Upton took up residency in the Atlanta Braves outfield, we all knew it was just a matter of time before they went yard back-to-back.

On Tuesday night, it happened.

In the fifth inning of their contest against the Colorado Rockies, the brothers took righty Jon Garland deep.  B.J. went yard first for his third home run of the season, while younger brother Justin followed up with number eleven.

And is case you were wondering, this was the first time brothers hit back-to-back home runs in 75 years.  On September 15, 1938, Lloyd and Paul Waner went deep for for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

I'll let you make the Jamie Moyer jokes.
