Acuna hits 2 leadoff HRs as Braves sweep

ATLANTA (AP) Perfect games? Unassisted triple plays? They're not even as rare as what Ronald Acuna Jr. pulled off Monday night.

His legend growing with each game, the 20-year-old rookie hit leadoff homers in both games of a doubleheader to lead the first-place Atlanta Braves to a sweep of the Miami Marlins.

Acuna appeared to be only the fourth player in baseball history to accomplish the feat, and certainly the youngest.
