Ronald Acuna hits long homer off Yankees ace

Ronald Acuna is in the home-run column.

Acuna sent a 1-1 Masahiro Tanaka pitch to deep center to put the Braves up 3-0 on the Yankees in the first inning of Friday’s game.

After a 1-for-9 start to the season, the Braves’ top prospect has caught fire in the past few days. He’s coming off back-to-back two-hit days.

Acuna is competing for a spot in the opening-day outfield. He started in left field Friday.
