Acuna hits first HR, leads Braves past Reds

Braves recall prospect Fried from Triple-A

Acuna, 20, opened the season at Triple-A Gwinnett and is regarded as the top prospect in baseball.

Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies, the two youngest players in the major leagues, 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.

Acuna Jr., rated as the rare five-tool player who can run, hit for average and power, field and throw, won't need long to get a look at what a top-level major league starting pitcher looks like.

Acuna became the youngest Braves player to homer since Andruw Jones against the Reds on August 23, 1997, when he was 20 years, 122 days.

The losing pitcher was Shackelford (0-1), who allowed the tying run to score in the eighth and put two runners on in the ninth.

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. The 21-year-old Albies hit a two-run homer in the fifth and an RBI double in the ninth.

Ronald Acuna originally signed with the Atlanta Braves for $100,000 as an worldwide free agent in July 2014.

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. The Atlanta Braves got a taste of it during spring training the last two seasons as this is not Acuna's first season being the talk of Braves camp. He struck out a season-low one batter. He was outstanding in both of his starts against the Braves this season, limiting them to three runs in 11.1 innings, and he stands at 5-2 with a stifling 2.04 ERA in nine career starts against the division rivals. 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. 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 just kind of react to the situation", Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said. Albies was hit by a pitch by Kevin Shackelford to start the inning. "Tonight (Wednesday) I felt like I had four guys I was going to use".
