Only one week into the 2013 season, the Atlanta Braves' offseason moves are already paying big dividends. The team's two biggest acquisitions, brothers B.J. and Justin Upton, each homered in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Cubs last night, propelling the Braves to their fourth victory of the young season.
After clawing back from a 5-1 deficit, Bossman Junior led off the 9th inning with a solo shot to center, tying the game at 5-5. Two batters later, younger brother Justin completed the dramatic comeback, smashing a walk-off home run to center field, his second of the game and fifth of the season. The Uptons became the first siblings in MLB history to achieve the highly unlikely feat of hitting game-tying and game-winning home runs in the same inning.
