Upton Brothers: Home Runs Blast Braves Past Cubs in Ninth [GIFs]

The Braves trailed the Cubs 5-4 in the bottom of the 9th Saturday night in Atlanta. B.J. Upton hit his first home run as a Brave to tie the game. Two batters later, his brother Justin hit a walk-off homer over the center field fence, which was history – the Upton brothers became the first siblings in MLB history to hit a game-tying and game-winning home run while on the same team in the same inning. The Braves are off to a 4-1 start, their best since 2009.

Braves announcer Chip Caray after Justin’s home run: “Let’s go home!”
