Acuna had a big day at the plate going 3-for-4 while driving in two runs. He made sure his first home run was memorable with a titanic blast into the second deck at Great American Ballpark.

Nice to see that Acuna’s teammates can have a little fun as well.
YOU THOUGHT ALBIES WAS GOING TO LET ACUÑA STEAL HIS THUNDER?— FOX Sports: Braves (@FOXSportsBraves) April 26, 2018

Not to be outdone, Albies homered for the second straight night and set the franchise record for most extra-base hits in the month of April. Albies was 2-for-5 in the game with three RBI.
Albies also showed that he can do it with the glove as well. Here he goes deep into foul territory and successfully navigates the tarp to flag down a foul pop.
