VIDEO: Ronald Acuña Smashes Leadoff Homer in Braves' Series Opener Against Phillies

Well, that didn't take long. The Atlanta Braves, coming off a series win against the Washington Nationals that all but decided the NL East race at long last, set up shop tonight at Citizens Bank Park for a date with another divisional foe, the Philadelphia Phillies. And on the second pitch of the game, Ronald Acuña Jr. delivered a concise argument to starter Aaron Nola.

That's 38 home runs on the year for the Pheñom, who has the mojo working once again as the playoffs draw nearer.

It's still mighty early in the City of Brotherly Love, but things just seem to keep going the Braves' way these days.
