The Braves won for the second time in two games since calling up their top prospect, Ronald Acuna Jr. and the 20-year-old phenom has played a role in both Ws.
He hit his first career home run on Thursday and it looks like it will land shortly after I publish this write-up. He absolutely smoked a belt-high fastball into the upper deck at Great American Ballpark in his first at-bat of the game.
He may have swung a little too hard in the at-bats that followed but he found no-mans land twice on balls that weren’t hit hard.
The first was a ground ball that forced the shortstop to his right and there isn’t a shortstop in baseball that’s going to throw him out on a play like that.
The second was a looping fly ball in between the second baseman and the right fielder.
Mike Foltynewicz will start this game. He has room to improve his WHIP numbers but he’s done a great job at limiting damage in the meantime. His ERA+ is well above league average and there’s reason to believe it will become superior.
The Phils lost their rubber match with Arizona on Thursday. Ben Lively got rocked and Nick Ahmed homered yet again for Arizona, which remains hot.
Nick Pivetta threw one of the best games of last season, a complete game shutout win over Chris Sale in the middle of the year in a game that got over in something like two hours.
He impressed me in that game but faltered down the stretch. He’s off to a great start this year, though, which leads me to believe he’s figured some stuff out to unleash the good stuff he’s got.
He’s only walked four in 28 innings. He’ll come at you with strikes and tip his cap if you string together hits. I like guys like that, especially in the regular season, and even more against a young lineup.
