Braves’ Acuna smashes longest homer of season

Atlanta Braves center fielder Ronald Acuna Jr. belted a tape-measure home run that won’t soon be forgotten in the first inning Friday against the Boston Red Sox.

Acuna rocked a 495-foot leadoff shot that measured as the longest homer in MLB this season and tied for the fifth-longest in the Statcast Era (since 2015).

Acuna’s homer came on a 3-1 count off Chris Mazza. He has 13 home runs this season after hitting 41 last year.

Acuna, the 2018 Rookie of the Year, is batting .257 with 28 RBIs and a .997 OPS.
