Bo and Josh Naylor, the Guardians’ siblings, hit home runs in the same inning to celebrate National Siblings Day

Wednesday was National Siblings Day, and to celebrate, Bo and Josh Naylor of the Cleveland Guardians decided to hit home runs in the same inning. The Chicago White Sox were leading 5-0 in the fourth inning when the Naylor brothers stepped up to the plate. Josh started it off with a 450-foot shot to right center field, followed by Bo who hit a 438-foot blast to center field, cutting the deficit to 5-3. Josh’s home run was his third of the season, while Bo knocked in his second.

This wasn’t the first time the Naylors accomplished this feat. Back on July 14, 2023, they each hit two-run shots in the same inning during a game against the Rangers, becoming the first brothers in MLB history to do so for the same team. Since 1900, the Naylors are one of six brother combos to hit home runs in the same inning. They are also among four pairs of brothers who have achieved this twice, joining notable duos like the Uptons, Ripkens, and Waners.

The Naylors are the 13th pair of brothers to hit home runs in the same game as teammates and the ninth to achieve it twice. Following their home runs, the brothers continued to contribute to the team’s success. The Guardians completed a comeback and defeated the White Sox 7-6, with Josh tying the score in the bottom of the 10th inning with a double, and Bo walking it off with a single.

Bo Naylor expressed his gratitude for sharing these special moments with his brother, stating that it made the game even more enjoyable. The bond between the Naylor brothers translated into on-field success, showcasing the power of sibling camaraderie in baseball.
