Last night on ESPN, Ronald Acuña Jr. was again the whole damn show. No sooner did Tim Kurkjian finish saying “the ball jumps off his bat to the right-center gap,” and then Ronnie Sauce did this.
Home run number 20 off Noah Syndergaard.
In the end, it was a pretty good little ballgame between the Atlanta Braves – who are one of baseball’s best teams at the current moment – and the Mets (one of the sports laughingstock franchises).
Acuña had three hits in all and a steal, and has the OPS up to .889 on the season.
