Ronald Acuna Launches First Home Run of Career Off Homer Bailey

Report: Braves Call Up Top Prospect Ronald Acuna Atlanta Braves: Ronald Acuna – Braves fans should be excited, but realistic
| 29 April, 2018, 01:10

The Braves are calling up one of the top prospects in baseball.

It's worth noting the young outfielder struggled in 16 minor league games this season, hitting just.215 with one home run and two RBIs. We're guessing an autographed ball and/or bat are headed his way.

Overall, Acuna slashed.325/.374/.522 with 21 homers, 31 doubles, eight triples and 44 steals across three minor league levels in 2017 - and he did so all before turning 20 years of age this past December.

The Braves apparently saw Acuna make the desired progress during that time.

CINCINNATI (AP) - Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies, the two youngest players in the major leagues, both homered and combined for five RBIs to lead Atlanta over the Cincinnati Reds 7-4 Thursday and give the Braves a split of the four-game series. Bailey is 2-2 against the Braves over six career starts, with a 4.54 ERA.

Kevin Shackelford (0-1) took the loss in his first appearance of the season since coming off the disabled list.

Freddie Freeman had a strong season-opening series against the Phillies, collecting four RBI's to go with a.500 on base percentage in three games. Sam Freeman got the win to even his record at 1-1 while Arodys Vizcaino got his 2nd save of the year. The Reds dropped to 5-19, matching the 1931 team for the worst 24-game start in club history.


White Sox 6, Royals 3 • Matt Davidson hit two of Chicago's five home runs in the first six innings in a win at Kansas City.

Jesse Biddle allowed three hits over two scoreless innings, Dan Winkler (1-0) pitched a flawless eighth and A.J. Minter worked the ninth for his first career save.

Newcomb faced the Reds on August 20 of last season, pitching five shutout innings during an 8-1 Braves win.

"We made it tough on Brandon Finnegan", manager Jim Riggleman said.

Every Atlanta starter except catcher Kurt Suzuki had at least one hit, including pitcher Sean Newcomb, who also was enjoying watching and being part of the youth movement.

With the Braves in the midst of a 10-game road trip, the soonest Atlanta fans can see their new prized possession at home is Friday, May 4 against the Giants.

Newcomb gave up four runs, five hits and three walks in six innings.
