TORONTO (AP) --- Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and his older brother, Yuli, have become
the first brothers in major league history to have multihomer games on the same
Toronto's Lourdes Gurriel homered in the first and fourth innings Friday night
in the Blue Jays' 11-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. He also became the first
rookie in Blue Jays history to homer in three straight at-bats after hitting a
game-tying homer in the ninth inning of Toronto's win on Thursday. Lourdes
Gurriel, who has 11 homers this season, is the 14th Toronto player to achieve
the feat, the first since Josh Donaldson on Sept. 16-17, 2017.
Houston's Yuli Gurriel hit a grand slam in the first inning and added a two-run
shot in the third inning of the Astros' 11-3 victory over the Los Angeles
Angels. He has 12 homers this season.
