Acuna went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Friday's 4-3 win over the Nationals. He scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning, drawing a walk and eventually coming around on Josh Donaldson's walkoff single. Acuna is taking his duties as Atlanta's leadoff hitter seriously by ramping up his activity level on the basepaths -- he's stolen six bases in the last six games to give him a career-high 19 on the year.
Acuna went 1-for-4 with two stolen bases in Tuesday's 13-1 loss to the Brewers. The 21-year-old is now 16-for-19 on the basepaths this season, matching his steals total from last year in 16 fewer games and two fewer attempts.

The leadoff man is hitting .289/.372/.514 with 23 homers, 55 RBI and 70 runs scored in 92 games this season. He's also swiped 13 bases. The center fielder is striking out in 24.3 percent of his plate appearances, but his five-category contributions have been more than enough to compensate for the frequent whiffs.
