Justin and B.J. Upton have spent less than half a season together in the Atlanta Braves outfield, but you have to figure the brothers spent enough time together chasing flyballs during their childhoods in Virginia to avoid things like this:

B.J. made the catch — it was his ball as both centerfielder and older brother — and then gave Justin a little shove as the two were running off the field. You know it’s a tough day when you play two games and having two of your best and most expensive players crash into each other counts as one of your rare highlights. Such was the case on Thursday for Atlanta, however, as the Braves were swept by the Mets in a day-night twinbill.

KEITH: Harvey, Wheeler excel on day Mets will long remember
