When two brothers both make it to Major League Baseball, it’s exciting to watch them both come into their own and kick off their careers.
Though usually with separate organizations, it’s still fun to watch the two of them do their thing.
Yesterday though, a set of MLB brothers made some history, each recording a save.
New York Mets’ closer Edwin Diaz took the mound in the ninth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday.
While he made things a little interesting, putting the tying runs on base, he managed to strike out Harrison Bader and put the game away.
A few hours later in Cleveland, Edwin’s brother Alexis took the mound in the bottom of the tenth and struck out Jose Ramirez to earn a save for the Cincinnati Reds.

This is nice to see.
It’s only the third time it has ever happened in baseball history.
But both brothers had their best stuff working.
Edwin is already one of the most dominant closers in the game and he managed to stop the Cardinals’ threat.
But Alexis decided to take after his brother and strike out one of the best hitters in the game to earn the save.
You can bet that the two of them probably shared a moment talking to each other after both games were finished.
It’s not too often that you’re going to see two brothers record saves on the same day.
But lo and behold, it happened on Tuesday.
These two guys brought their A-game on Tuesday and showed the baseball world what a talented family they come from.
And the two of them shared a dream come true.
