Tampa Bay Rays center fielder B.J. Upton began his major league career in 2004, on Aug. 2. His younger brother Justin, a right fielder for the Arizona Diamondbacks, made his big league debut in 2007. Also on Aug. 2.

Fast forward to 2012 and both were sitting at 99 career home runs entering play Friday. They each pulled to within one of the century mark on July 20.

In the top of the second inning Justin hit #100 off of Philadelphia Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick.

 

A bit later B.J. equaled his brother by taking Tommy Hunter of the Baltimore Orioles deep to center field.

 

Naturally, both were solo homers.

The elder Upton has the HR lead for the season, 10 to 9.
