Acuña, Olson back-to-back; Strider Ks 9, Braves top Nats 7-1

WASHINGTON (AP) Ronald Acuña Jr. claimed teammate Orlando Arcia predicted the Atlanta Braves would hit back-to-back homers on Saturday.

Acuña offered that tidbit to reporters after he and Matt Olson did just that right off the bat in what became a 7-1 victory for the Braves over the Washington Nationals. Olson, who ended up with two of Atlanta's four long balls, wasn't so sure about the veracity of the anecdote.

“Just so you all know: We called it in BP,” Acuña said through a wide smile. “Arcia was the one who said, ‘I think today we’re going to get our first back-to-back home runs.’”
