TAMPA BAY, FLA. (Sports Xchange) -

B.J. Upton reached two milestones Friday night with one swing.

By hitting his 100th career home run, the Tampa Bay Rays outfielder became just the eighth player in major league history to amass 100 homers and 200 steals before his 28th birthday, joining Rickey Henderson, Cesar Cedeno, Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonds, Eric Davis, Lloyd Moseby and Hanley Ramirez.

"Any time you can be in the same sentence with any of those guys, it's always an honor," Upton, 27, said after the Rays' 2-0 win over the Orioles. "I'm glad I was in a position to be able to do that; Rickey Henderson was definitely one of the guys I looked up to growing up watching baseball. To even be mentioned with that caliber of players, especially with their track records, it's definitely a good thing."

And he also kept pace with his 24-year-old brother, Justin, the Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder who less than an hour earlier in the night hit the 100th homer of his career.

"I was just texting him actually. He said he got his before mine, but it's all good," Upton said. "It was cool to do that on the same day, but it's just one homer. I'm glad it happened, and now it's over with."

The Uptons became the sixth set of brothers to hit 100 homers apiece in the majors, joining Sandy (112) and Roberto (210) Alomar; Aaron (126) and Bret (252) Boone; Clete (162) and Ken (282) Boyer; Joe (361) and Vince (125) DiMaggio; and Irish (106) and Bob (156) Meusel.

The Uptons are the only ones to hit their 100th in the same season.

Interestingly, they also hit their 99th homers on the same night, July 20. Friday marked the 13th time they homered on the same day.
