KISSIMMEE Charlie Morton Jersey , Fla. (AP) — When Ronald Acuna Jr. got back to the Atlanta Braves‘ clubhouse after getting his third hit of the game, Freddie Freeman acted surprised.“You should have kept going,” Freeman told him, “and gone for the cycle.”Acuna went 3 for 3 with a long home run and double off St. Louis opening day starter Miles Mikolas in Atlanta’s 5-0 exhibition win Tuesday. It was the kind of performance the Braves have come to expect from the 2018 NL Rookie of the Year, and the kind of day Acuna expects from himself.Good enough that former Braves great Dale Murphy sheepishly asked Acuna for his autograph, demonstrating the stature the 21-year-old outfielder has achieved after less than a full season in the big leagues.“I’ve felt good from the day we started camp, but as the games progressed I’ve felt even better,” he said through a translator. “I think with these last at-bats, just a little extra patience has gone into it. I’ve had good at-bats even if the results weren’t what we would have wanted, but things are progressing quickly and we kind of see the results now.”Acuna hit .293 with 26 home runs in 111 games last year, helping the Braves win the NL East after four straight losing seasons. His three homers are among nine hits in 25 at-bats this spring.The Braves open the season March 28 at Philadelphia. Last year, Acuna was not brought up to the majors until April 25.“I’ve been anxious for the season to start since we got here to camp. I’ve felt ready, I’ve been wanting this to happen,” he said. “When the season starts is out of my control. All I can control is how I go about my business.”Acuna led off 66 times as a rookie and subtly suggested early in spring training that batting first is his preference. But he has batted fourth most of the time this spring http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , including Tuesday, behind Ender Inciarte, Josh Donaldson and Freeman.“The mentality is the same for me — see the ball, hit the ball,” he said. “As long as I’m in the lineup, I’m happy. Those decisions aren’t up to me.”Acuna figures to be in the Atlanta lineup for a while.“It’s an impressive set of skills,” observed Braves coach Walt Weiss. “The power and the speed combo is elite. He’s not just a power guy. I think he’s going to be a really good hitter his whole career, and when he gets rolling it’s fun to watch.”NOTES: Rookie RHP Bryse Wilson, continuing his long shot bid for one of the two unclaimed spots in the Braves’ season-opening pitching rotation, gave up one hit and struck out five in four innings. Wilson, a fourth-round draft choice in 2016, has given up two hits in seven innings in his two starts. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — After getting three big homers and nine innings of outstanding pitching to complete a series sweep, the Los Angeles Angels are headed into a day off with a rare feeling of contentment in their disappointing season.The Detroit Tigers are just grateful to be going home after a horrific California road trip ended with nothing but losses.Justin Upton and Albert Pujols hit back-to-back homers in the fifth inning Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey , and the Angels swept the Tigers with a 6-0 victory Wednesday.Kole Calhoun hit a leadoff homer and rookie Jaime Barria (7-7) pitched five-hit ball into the sixth inning for the Angels, who were in a 1-6 skid before getting back to .500 with their first series sweep — and their first shutout victory — since early June.“It’s always good to win like this, especially when you sweep a series,” Barria said “Everybody is feeling much better. It’s a better atmosphere in the clubhouse.”The atmosphere was quiet down the hall as the struggling Tigers packed up for the plane: Detroit scored only eight runs on its 0-6 road trip, getting shut out three times. All but three of Detroit’s runs over 58 innings of play out West came in Tuesday night’s 11-5 loss to the Angels.“We’ve got a lot of guys struggling at the same time, a lot of guys fighting it,” Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire said. “We’ve got a day off, and we know we play better at home. We’ve got time to maybe work on a few things. We’ve got to get back on the positive side mentally.”Mike Trout missed his seventh consecutive game with a sore right wrist, but the Angels still scored 23 runs in the three-game series without their best player.“Obviously you never want to play many games without a guy like Mike in our lineup, but I think we’re holding our own,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.The Angels broke it open in the fifth when Upton connected on a full-count changeup from Blaine Hardy (4-4) for a two-run homer. Moments later, Pujols added his 632nd career homer.Hardy yielded seven hits over five innings for the Tigers, who are headed home without a win on the West Coast. Detroit has lost 21 of its past 26 road games overall.Starting with three strikeouts in the first inning, Barria had another effective outing for the Angels Nolan Ryan Jersey , who have benefited greatly from his surprising emergence as a dependable starter in their injury-plagued rotation. He struck out five in total and walked one before leaving with two outs in the sixth. The Angels bullpen then got 10 consecutive outs to finish it.Jefry Marte had an RBI single in the first inning, and he doubled and scored on Jose Briceno’s single in the sixth.KOLE’S SHOTCalhoun led off for the Angels with his 15th homer. The blast was the ninth leadoff homer by Calhoun, who endured a miserable first half of the season before finding his stride since coming off the disabled list June 18. He has hit 14 homers since that DL stint, tops in the AL during that stretch.TROUT OUTThe Angels got more good news when Scioscia said he’s optimistic Trout could play Friday against the Oakland Athletics. Trout’s wrist has kept him out for the second-longest injury absence of his big-league career, but he will come in Thursday on the Angels’ day off to throw and perhaps to swing a bat.NO-HEIShohei Ohtani had the day off after homering Tuesday night as the Angels’ designated hitter. Ohtani frequently sits against left-handed starting pitchers such as Hardy.UNHAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTHThe Tigers haven’t won a series at Angel Stadium since August 2009, and they’ve lost 24 of their past 31 games in Anaheim. They’ve also lost 31 of their 43 meetings overall with the Angels since September 2012.TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: Catcher John Hicks went on the 10-day disabled list with a right groin strain. The move was retroactive to Tuesday. Detroit recalled catcher Grayson Greiner from Triple-A Toledo to back up James McCann.Angels: Manager Mike Scioscia is still hoping Tyler Skaggs can start Saturday against Oakland after coming off the 10-day disabled list. Skaggs went on the DL last weekend with a left adductor strain, but the move was retroactive to his previous start.UP NEXTTigers: After a day off, Jordan Zimmermann (4-4, 4.31 ERA) makes his 16th start of the season in the opener of a home series against Minnesota.Angels: After a day off, converted reliever Felix Pena (1-3, 4.97 ERA) makes his ninth start of the season Friday at home against Oakland. Pena has been a solid stopgap for the Halos’ troubled rotation. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning in Cleveland last weekend, but still took the loss.
