On May 11, 2000 — Aaron and Bret Boone, sons of former major league catcher Bob and the grandsons of Ray, also a former big leaguer, hit home runs in the same game for the second time in their careers. Bret’s pair of two-run homers, a shot in the top of the first and an inside-the-parker in the sixth, is offset by his younger sibling’s walk-off round-tripper in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Reds an 11-9 victory over the Padres at Cinergy Field.
