Improving Royals look to slow down Acuna, Braves

The Kansas City Royals will look for a way to slow down outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. when they make a quick stop in Atlanta for a two-game series against the Braves.

The opening game features a pair of veteran left-handers. The Royals will send Danny Duffy (4-5, 4.52 ERA) against Atlanta's Dallas Keuchel (3-3, 3.58) on Tuesday.

Acuna went 2-for-4 on Sunday and has reached base in 27 consecutive games. His on-base streak dates to June 19 and is the longest active stretch in the majors. He was 8-for-17 in the just-completed four-game series against Washington and now has hits in 14 of his last 15 games.
