ATLANTA — Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Braves has become only the third player in baseball history to hit 40 homers in a season at 21 years old or younger.
Acuna’s historic homer came with a flourish in the third inning of Atlanta’s 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. He launched a 432-foot drive into the second deck at SunTrust Park, standing at home plate to admire his shot off Aaron Nola before tossing the bat away and slowly rounding the bases.
