Acuna homers to lead Braves past Phillies 5-2 in first of 2

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Ronald Acuna Jr. hit a two-run homer to put the Atlanta Braves ahead for good in a 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in the first game of a doubleheader on Sunday.

The Braves scored five runs in the decisive fifth inning, Starter Vince Velasquez left with a runner on base and Acuna went deep off Deolis Guerra (1-1) for a 2-1 lead.

The Phillies used four pitchers in the fifth and their beleaguered bullpen -- coming off a rare sharp outing in a combined shutout in the series opener -- was rocked again. Adam Duvall hit a three-run double just below the 334-foot sign in left off Adam Morgan for a 5-1 lead and send the Braves on their way to the seven-inning victory.
