The best hitter currently on the Braves after Ronald Acuña Jr. [Sports News]
The Atlanta Braves entered the day on Friday with the best record in the National League, basically because they command the circuit in pitching and hitting, with figures such as Ronald Acuña Jr. shining with their own light.
Of course, the mediatic Venezuelan player has not been the only one to exhibit a great offensive arsenal in May, since there is a Dominican who is going through his best moment in the tournament: Marcell Ozuna.
Indeed, the Santo Domingo-born veteran has been instrumental in the Braves’ recent two straight wins, homering in each of those games. Additionally, he’s hitting .417 with a .463 batting average and seven RBIs during the final week of action, while posting .342 points and a .421 OBP, plus eight homers and 19 RBIs in May.
Undoubtedly, Ozuna has been a notable squire of Ronald Acuña Jr., who in turn leads several areas in attack throughout baseball: hits (65), runs scored (46) and stolen bases (22), while being the No. 1 in WAR (2.9); category that measures the contribution of a player in various aspects, offensive and defensive, for the victory of his team.
The Braves have in Ronald Acuña Jr. and Marcell Ozuna an explosive duo of Latino shovelers that is wreaking havoc in MLB.
