His teammate and older brother B.J. Upton is off to a slower start with only 3 home runs and a .160 batting average but (I'm sure) it's just a matter of time before the talented and older Upton starts to swing a hot bat.
Having two brothers on the same team is not a phenomena you see everyday in major-league baseball, so the Uptons are part of what could be considered a historical exclusive club. In fact, last night they both homered in a 10-2 win over the Colorado Rockies, marking only the 27th time in major-league history that two brothers homered in the same game.
For the Uptons, however, it was an even more rare feat because they actually hit back-to-back home runs. According to ESPN (via the Elias Sports Bureau) this was only the second time in major-league history that two brothers hit back-to-back home runs. The only other occurrence was on September 15, 1938 when hall-of-famers Lloyd and Paul Waner homered in consecutive at-bats for the Pittsburgh Pirates. To date, Lloyd and Paul are the only brothers enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Now that's what you call-- Brothers in Arms!
