The Atlanta Braves pushed their lead in the NL East to two games over the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday night with a 10-6 win over the Miami Marlins. Ronald Acuña Jr hit two more home runs including a leadoff shot on the first pitch he saw in the game. That gives Acuña three leadoff home runs in the series and homers in five straight games.
