Acuna, Braves look to inflict more early damage on Giants

The Atlanta Braves continue to reap the benefits of moving Ronald Acuna Jr. to the top of the order.

The second-year center fielder has been hot at the plate since he was moved from cleanup to the leadoff spot 10 games ago. The Braves won eight of those contests, and one of the two losses came in extra innings.

Acuna was 3-for-4 on Monday in Atlanta's 4-1 win over the Giants in the series opener at San Francisco, making him 14-for-41 (.341) with four homers and nine RBIs since switching from cleanup to leadoff in the batting order.
