Ronald Acuña Jr. was in the news after Game 1 of the NLDS for all the wrong reasons, but he's leaving that in the past and has been balling out ever since, including in Game 4.

Acuña was one of the few Braves players who did his job in Monday's series-tying defeat against the Cardinals, as he went 4-for-5 with two extra-base hits. Sadly, he didn't score a single time, putting him in a unique playoff category.

Since Acuña didn't come around to score a run, he became just the fourth player in postseason history to have four hits, two of which went for extra bases, yet have zero runs scored.

He joins Buster Posey (2010), Tony Armas (1981) and Vic Wertz (1954) in this unfortunate category.

Of the four players Acuña joins, he's the only one without an RBI on top of it all. Of course, being the leadoff hitter lends to provide fewer RBI opportunities-- especially when few other teammates are helping to carry the load at the plate.

The Braves will certainly take another four-hit performance from Acuña in Game 5 on Wednesday, and this time, Atlanta has to hope they drive him in. If that doesn't happen, they could very well be going home.
