PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Brothers Justin Upton and B.J. Upton both hit career homer No. 100 on Friday night, just about an hour apart and in different leagues.

Justin Upton connected for Arizona in the second inning at Philadelphia off Kyle Kendrick. Then it was older brother’s turn. B.J. Upton went deep in the fourth inning for Tampa Bay against Baltimore’s Tommy Hunter.

B.J. Upton joins Rickey Henderson, Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonds, Cesar Cedeno, Lloyd Moseby, Eric Davis and Hanley Ramirez as the only players to amass 100 homers and 200 steals before age 28. Upton turns 28 on Aug. 21.
