With his first inning stolen base, Acuna joins Jason Heyward (2012) and Andruw Jones (2000) as the only Braves to record a 20-20 season this century. Hank Aaron (1963), Dale Murphy (1983) and Ron Gant (1990-91) are the only Braves to notch a 30-30 season.

Teheran will start Wednesday’s game against KC and the Braves plan for Fried to be ready to return from the injured list next weekend in Philly. So, there is not a current target date for Folty to return.

Acuna's 19th stolen base put him in position to score on Freeman's one-out single. He's one steal away from recording what would be the Braves' third 20-20 season of this century (Heyward in 2012 and Andruw in 2000)

Teheran has allowed one hit while throwing 62 pitches through five scoreless. He's retired 13 straight. Ten of the 19 two-seamers he's thrown have resulted in a called strike.

Riley got himself a 3-0 fastball after spitting on two sliders to begin his fourth-inning plate appearance vs. Corbin. His RBI double was his third extra-base hit of the month. He entered today with MLB's second-highest chase rate (55.7%) vs. sliders
