The Uptons could be two-thirds of the Alous

WalkoffsThe last and only time three brothers hit consecutively in the same inning

Jesus Alou, Matty Alou, Felipe Alou

On September 10, 1963, in New York’s Polo Grounds, the miserable New York Mets faced the mediocre San Francisco Giants. In the top of the 8th, facing Mets starter Carlton Willey, the youngest of the three Alou brothers, Jesus, made his major league debut pinch hitting for shortstop Jose Pagan. Jesus grounded out to shortstop Al Moran.

Next up came the middle Alou, Matty. Mateo, pinch hit and struck out for pitcher Bob Garibaldi. Finally, the eldest Alou, Felipe, the lead-off batter, bounced back to the mound. Three Alous, three outs, no balls hit out of the infield.
