Corey Patterson and his younger brother, Eric, are playing in Tuesday's game.

It's the first time brothers have played against each other in a game involving the Orioles since June 10, 2004, when Jerry Hairston and his brother Scott, then with the Arizona Diamondbacks, played at Camden Yards.

The Pattersons have played together one other time in the big leagues, back in 2008, when Corey was with the Cincinnati Reds and Eric was with the Chicago Cubs.

They also played against each other in the minors last year, but Corey joked that he didn't want to think about that.
