Braves, Phillies begin weekend series in Philly

The Atlanta Braves will see what Ronald Acuna Jr. can do as an encore.

Acuna, the highly touted 20-year-old, crushed his first major league home run on Thursday in his second game. His third big league game should come Friday night as the Braves start a weekend series against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

Ranked as the top prospect by Baseball America, Acuna was called up earlier in the week. He had one hit in his debut Wednesday and followed with a three-hit, two-RBI performance against the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday. Acuna smashed a homer to the second deck of Great American Ball Park and then had the go-ahead double in the Braves' 14th win of the season.
