Top prospect Ronald Acuna set to join Braves in Cincinnati

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

He has made an immediate impact.

The Braves scored two times in the fifth inning and took a 4-0 lead when Ozzie Albies hit his eighth home run, a two-run shot to right field. He finished 1-for-5, with one long fly ball out.

"I didn't know what to think when I got the call to the big leagues", Acuna Jr. said through an interpreter upon arriving to the ballpark. It was great to share the news.

Bailey hasn't faced Atlanta since the 2014 season, mostly because of multiple injuries. The Braves lead the season series 4-2. Albies was hit by a pitch by Kevin Shackelford to start the inning.

Bailey allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings. Furthermore, Julio Teheran is in a groove on the mound, conceding only three runs in his last 19 innings, and he held the Phillies to one run in six innings 11 days ago, plus the Phillies lineup is only hitting a combined.213 in 164 at bats against him.

Reds starter Brandon Finnegan, who opened the season on the disabled list with a strained left biceps, allowed two earned in five innings. 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. Scott Schebler and Billy Hamilton were 1-for-2 against him, while Scooter Gennett was 0-for-3 and Joey Votto was 0-for-1. The 20-year-old Acuna led off the second inning with a home run, singled in the sixth and hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth following Freddie Freeman's third double of the game.
