TORONTO -- Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and his older brother, Yuli, have become the first brothers in major league history to have multihomer games on the same day.

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 consecutive at-bats after hitting a game-tying homer in the ninth inning of Toronto's victory Thursday.

Lourdes Gurriel, who has 11 homers this season, is the 14th Toronto player to achieve home runs in three straight at-bats, and 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.
