    By: Gabriel Burns, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


    ATLANTA - The Braves’ Ronald Acuna is about making history at the start of every game.

    He homered on the first pitch from Miami’s Trevor Richards on Tuesday, his third-straight game with a lead-off homer. He’s the first to do so since Brady Anderson homered in four straight in 1999.

    Acuna’s hit a home run in five-straight contests, tying the franchise record. He’s the first Brave to achieve such since Brian McCann in 2006.

    Charlie Culberson followed Acuna with a homer on the ensuing pitch, putting the Braves up 2-0 on the Marlins.
