Atlanta Braves: Ronald Acuna - Braves fans should be excited, but realistic

Atlanta Braves: Ronald Acuna - Braves fans should be excited, but realistic

Bailey's last two starts came against the St. Louis Cardinals, a loss and a no-decision in which he gave up a combined six runs on 11 hits over 12 2/3 innings.

We have some NL East division action on Friday, as the Atlanta Braves take on the Philadelphia Phillies in Major League Baseball action.

Acuña's first career home run, which came on a fat Homer Bailey 3-1 slider, traveled an estimated 416 feet, landing in the second deck of Great American Ballpark. Acuna was greeted in the dugout by the traditional silent treatment and walked nearly the entire length of the dugout, exchanging phantom high-fives, before his teammates pounced to celebrate.

Acuna, though, got off to a brutal start in Triple-A Gwinnett, which prompted the Braves to keep the 21-year-old in the minors even longer.

Albies, a 21-year-old who made his debut last August, hit a two-run homer in the fifth for a 4-0 lead and added an RBI double in the ninth.

Many have visions of a Mike Trout-esque season from 2012 (.326 average, 30 home runs, 49 stolen bases).

Mason Rudolph joins James Washington with Pittsburgh Steelers in third round
He finished his OSU career with 4,462 receiving yards, most in Cowboy history. The Pittsburgh Steelers called Washington's name with the 60th pick.

Sam Freeman (1-1) retired all four batters he faced and Arodys Vizcaino pitched a one-hit ninth for his second save.

"I thought he was really good", Snitker said.

Cincinnati dropped to 5-20 for the first time in franchise history.

Every Atlanta starter except catcher Kurt Suzuki had at least one hit, including pitcher Sean Newcomb.

The Philadelphia Phillies will host the Atlanta Braves as the NL East rivals kick off a three game series Friday night from Citizens Bank Park. He allowed five hits and walked five yet didn't surrender a run. That's been taking place over the past week, as Acuna has collected 1 11 hits and four walks with eight strikeouts in 37 plate appearances. He is still working to harness that power consistently in his swing, but the pitch recognition has returned that allowed him to be the most dominant player in the Arizona Fall League and in spring training.

The Reds begin a three-game interleague series at Minnesota today. Preston Tucker has been holding down the fort in left field and performed admirably as a stopgap, but his bat has cooled substantially since a hot start to the season (.514 OPS over his past 44 PAs).
