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 hosting Cincinnati Reds 7-4 Thursday and give the Braves a split of the four-game series.
The No. 2 prospect in Major League Baseball made his big league debut Wednesday night for the Atlanta Braves, going a quiet 1-for-5. The 27-year old second baseman is now hitting a terrific.313 with two homers and 10 RBI's on the season, and he has also scored 18 runs.
Honestly we're not sure who's more excited: Acuna, Acuna's teammates, or the Braves fan who caught the ball and bailed to figure out what merch he wants from the rookie. Acuna may not break out right away, but with experience and maturity, he has the potential to blossom into a superstar at the professional level. Arodys Vizcaino allowed a double and walk in the ninth, but retired pinch hitter Tucker Barnhart to end the game and earn his second save.

Today will be our first glimpse into the future of this superstar's career, so let's watch as he begins to take over the league. Yesterday he got his first hit, motored from first to third on a hustle play and then scored the tying run in the Braves win. Aaron Altherr is 3 for 21 against Teheran, while Maikel Franco is 10 for 33 with one RBI, and Rhys Hoskins is 4 for 9 with two RBI's. Votto has homered in three straight games for the sixth time.
