'Super special': Naylors homer in same inning for Guardians

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cleveland Guardians received a history-making pair of home runs from Bo and Josh Naylor on Friday night.

In a 12-4 loss to the Texas Rangers, the Naylors became the first brothers in major league history to hit multi-run homers in the same inning for the same team when each hit a two-run shot in the third to put the Guardians ahead 4-0.

"It's something super special," Bo Naylor said. "I think it was something that we joked about in the past. But come to see it pass, is pretty wild to think about."

Unfortunately, that was the lone highlight for Cleveland in the loss, as Jonah Heim homered and drove in four runs, fellow All-Star starters Corey Seager and Adolis Garcia also homered, and the Rangers rallied.

Nathaniel Lowe homered in the fourth as part of a 4-for-4 night. The Rangers scored two runs in that inning, one in the sixth, five in the seventh and four in the eighth.

Heim finished 3-for-5 and fell a triple short of the cycle. Garcia, who entered the game leading the American League in RBIs with 75, drove in three runs and scored three on his 3-for-5 night. His homer was his 24th.

Bo Naylor hit a 1-0 changeup from Rangers starter Jon Gray an estimated 435 feet to right field with no outs in the third.

Four batters later, Josh hit a 3-1 slider from Gray down the right-field line and it barely stayed fair to make it 4-0.

"When I hit mine, he and I had a great moment, you could see how excited he was for me," Bo Naylor said. "And when he hit his, I was up on the top step, waiting for him. It was just a cool moment to share with him."

The Rangers pulled ahead in the seventh. Seager's double off Sam Hentges (1-1) tied the game at 4-4. Garcia followed with an RBI single, Heim had a two-run double and Leody Taveras had a run-scoring single.

Brock Burke (3-2), the first of three Rangers relievers, left the bases loaded in a scoreless seventh.

Seager, Garcia and Heim all homered in the eighth off Cody Morris.

Cleveland starter Aaron Civale left with a 4-0 lead after five innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He threw 79 pitches.

"We had two big hits: The Naylor brothers," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "But other than that, it was kind of a quiet night for us."
