HOUSTON (AP) -- Brothers B.J. and Justin Upton both homered Tuesday night to lead the Atlanta Braves to a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros.

It was the fourth time the brothers have homered in the same game as teammates, tying a major league record.

B.J. Upton's homer was a solo shot off Scott Feldman (3-5) in the third inning that put Atlanta up 2-1. Younger brother Justin connected off Feldman the next inning to push the lead to 3-1.

It was a nice bounce-back game for the brothers, who were coming off a four-game series against Washington in which they went a combined 2 for 27.

Aaron Harang (6-6) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings. Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless ninth for his 22nd save.

Houston rookie George Springer hit his team-leading 14th home run and Jose Altuve added two hits to give him a major league-best 105.
