Video: Brothers Justin, B.J. Upton hit back-to-back home runs

Justin Upton and B.J. Upton did something on Tuesday that hadn't previously been accomplished since Sept. 15, 1938 when brothers Lloyd Waner and Paul Waner also did it.

The Uptons smacked back-to-back home runs to become the first brother combo to do that in 75 years in a Major League Baseball game.

It all went down in the top of the fifth inning at Coors Field when B.J. walloped a solo blast for his third home run of the season. Justin followed with his 11th home run of 2013 moments later.

Their performances helped lead the Braves over the Rockies, 10-2, to take both games of a doubleheader. Atlanta also won earlier in the day, 4-3.
