Ronald Acuna playing left field, batting sixth for Braves in Major League Baseball debut

Braves edge Reds in Acuna's big league debut

Acuña was rated the top outfield prospect in baseball by MLB.com in January.

CINCINNATI (AP) - Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies, the two youngest players in the major leagues, both homered and combined for five RBIs to lead Atlanta over the Cincinnati Reds 7-4 Thursday and give the Braves a split of the four-game series. Tucker Barnhart drove in Schebler with a double to right field.

The winning pitcher was Dan Winkler (1-0), who pitched a scoreless eighth.

Mariners 5, Indians 4 • Andrew Miller's absence was immediately felt by Cleveland's bullpen when Kyle Seager hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning off Nick Goody that lifted visiting Seattle to victory. Sam Freeman got the win to even his record at 1-1 while Arodys Vizcaino got his 2nd save of the year.

Every Atlanta starter except catcher Kurt Suzuki had at least one hit, including pitcher Sean Newcomb. Ben Lively took the loss, falling to 0-2 this season after allowing seven runs on seven hits while walking four over just 2.1 innings of work.

The Braves struck for a run in the first when Albies scored on an error by Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett.

Acuña finished a triple shy of the cycle in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Reds, adding a double later in the game and going 3 for 4 with two runs and two RBIs. Jose Peraza drove home the first run on a fielder's choice, and Joey Votto followed with a three-run homer, his third.

Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 4 • J.D. Martinez hit a three-run homer, Chris Sale won for the first time in three starts and Boston rallied in Toronto. Speaking of Newcomb, he gave up all four runs on five hits while walking three and striking out seven, not factoring in the decision.

UP NEXT: Braves: RHP Julio Teheran (1-1) is to start Friday at Philadelphia.

The Reds begin a three-game interleague series at Minnesota today.
