The White Sox gave the Texas Rangers a dose of brotherly love in Sunday's victory.

John Danks pitched six innings of two-run ball to earn his fourth win of the season, while Jordan Danks hit the go-ahead home run in the fourth inning off former Cubs starter Matt Garza.

The siblings accomplished a feat that hadn't been seen in MLB in over 66 years.

According to CSN Chicago stats guru Chris Kama, the last time a pitcher picked up a victory when his brother homered in the same game as teammates was on June 18, 1947 in the form of Mort Cooper (win) and Walker Cooper (home run) for the Giants. 

Kamka also noted that since the White Sox traded Alex Rios, Danks is battling .387 with two home runs.
