Ronald Acuna: Batting sixth in major-league debut

Ronald Acuna

He went 1/5 in his debut, and on Thursday, Acuña made his presence known in Cincinnati with a ridiculous upper deck home run off of Homer Bailey, which landed in the fourth or fifth row at Great American Ballpark. "Your first home run in the big leagues is a once-in-a-lifetime moment".

Acuna has the ability to provide excitement to a game through his blazing speed on the basepaths or his impressive raw power at the plate. If he was smart - and a good person - however, he'd beeline for the Braves clubhouse entrance to give the ball to Acuña in exchange for some better merch that is not most notable for having Rob Manfred's name on it. I think Braves fans and Ronald Acuna himself would be very pleased with that result for his 2018!

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

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. Votto has homered in three straight games for the sixth time. Albies was hit by a pitch by Kevin Shackelford to start the inning.

Albies, who was 2-for-5 with three RBIs, gave Atlanta an insurance run with a run-scoring double in the ninth inning.

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.

Salah, Contender For Ballon d'Or
Indeed, Ronaldo scored an incredible 61 goals in the 2014-15 season and still missed out to Messi, who had a slightly inferior 58. The latest to agree that Salah is getting inching towards Ballon d'Or recognition is Ghana's skipper, Asamoah Gyan.

EXTRA, EXTRA: Albies' two extra-base hits lifted his April total to a franchise-record 19, two more than Dale Murphy, Chipper Jones and Justin Upton. Then he was selected MVP of the Arizona Fall League. Teheran came through with a gem in his previous start, firing seven shutout innings against the Mets, finishing with the no decision in a game the Braves won.

Reds: Cincinnati opens a three-game trip on Friday at Minnesota. If he's in the lineup Thursday, he'll face Reds right-hander Homer Bailey (0-3, 3.68 ERA), who is winless in five starts this season yet has thrown two no-hitters in the majors.
