Braves, Acuña Jr. sink Mets on Tuesday night

As Ronald Acuña Jr. continues to manufacture one of the most impressive seasons MLB has seen from a player 21 years old or younger, he has created reason to think Cody Bellinger and Christian Yelich will not be the only National League players who receive first-place MVP votes.

Acuna strengthened his MVP resume as the Braves cooled a hot division rival with Tuesday night’s 5-3 win over the Mets at SunTrust Park. The 21-year-old All-Star homered for the seventh time in his past seven games and further backed Max Fried’s strong start by denying a run with a 99.1-mph throw to the plate.
