HOUSTON (AP) — Atlanta brothers B.J. and Justin Upton have homered in the same game for the fourth time as teammates, tying a major league record.

Other brothers who have done it four times are Jeremy and Jason Giambi and Vladimir and Wilton Guerrero.

B.J. Upton's homer against the Houston Astros on Tuesday night was a solo shot off Scott Feldman in the third inning. Younger brother Justin connected off Feldman the next inning.

This is the second season the brothers have played on the same team.
