Ronald Acuna, the Braves' top prospect, extended his Spring Training hitting streak to four games and upped his average to .432 as he went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in the Braves 6-3 win over the Astros on Sunday.

New A's catcher Jonathan Lucroy, on the go nonstop in an attempt to play catchup following his Monday arrival in camp, made his way into game action Saturday for his Cactus League debut.
Even when healthy, Nunez was facing long odds of a roster spot since the A's appear ready to enter the season with a three-man bench.
Plenty of hype followed A.J. Puk into Thursday's tilt under the lights, but the lefty's time on the mound was short-lived.
Five weeks have passed since MLB.com attempted to make a premature Opening Day roster prediction for the A's, and only two weeks remain until the club opens the regular season.
Bruce Maxwell, who handed over primary catching duties to accommodate the eight-year veteran Jonathan Lucroy, has been relegated to a backup role. Not only that, but the club has not yet guaranteed him an Opening Day roster spot.
After playing out the waiting game as part of a free-agent class victimized by a stalled market, the 31-year-old Lucroy agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million deal with the A's.
Athletics prospects stole the show on Tuesday, exploding at the plate in a group effort to lead top performers.
Raiders punter King took hacks in his helmet
A minor right elbow issue has kept Matt Joyce away from the A's outfield for nearly two weeks, but Joyce believes he'll be ready to man left field come Opening Day.
If the people who have watched A's third baseman Matt Chapman are to be believed, he has already reached elite status as a defender at the hot corner of the infield.
The Athletics have several openings in their starting rotation and are awaiting one or more hopeful to separate himself from the rest. Saturday's game against the Rangers didn't help clear up any questions about who may still be left standing when camp breaks in a couple of weeks.
The A's announced a one-year deal with veteran catcher Jonathan Lucroy on Monday.
Marcus Semien's tunneled focus has produced a fast start this spring. The A's shortstop has 11 hits in his first 22 Cactus League at-bats for a .500 average.
Opening Day is exactly three weeks away, and Thursday's matchup at Hohokam Stadium very well could resurface March 29 at the Oakland Coliseum.

Before Dustin Fowler arrived at A's camp this spring, the last time he stood in the batter's box against live pitching was June 27, 2017. So he certainly has some time to make up for.
Every Spring Training, prospects get a chance to show what they can do as they prepare for the upcoming season. Some compete for jobs in big league camp, while others vie for spots on Minor League affiliates. MLB Pipeline will visit all 30 camps this spring, and today we check in on the Athletics.
Jesus Luzardo underwent Tommy John surgery in high school and was drafted by the Nationals before being traded to the Athletics. He's now No. 2 on Oakland's Top 30 Prospects list and No. 60 overall.
The A's lefty already had a good slider, but he's often lacked the confidence to use it at his disposal. That wasn't the case in his Cactus League debut against the Rangers on Tuesday, which spanned two innings.
It was a mixed bag of results for two pitchers in competition for a place in the A's rotation on Monday.
Brandon Moss' second tour with the A's abruptly ended Sunday. The veteran slugger was designated for assignment to make room for a waiver claim: left-hander Jairo Labourt. Moss was released on Tuesday.
Matt Chapman's spring debut went off without a hitch Sunday. The A's third baseman, who missed each of the club's first eight games with right hand soreness, reported no issues swinging the bat. He went to the plate three times in Oakland's 12-4 road win over the Padres, flying out in his first two at-bats before drawing a walk in his final appearance.
It's far too early to single anyone out, especially since these guys collectively struggled in the first week of games, but Daniel Mengden does seem to be favored by the A's brass. Assuming he lands one of the three open rotation spots, that leaves Jharel Cotton, Andrew Triggs, Paul Blackburn and Daniel Gossett in battle. Gossett, slowed by some back tightness this week, is slightly behind his competition, so it will probably come down to three guys for two spots. At this point, my guess would be Cotton and Blackburn, but that could easily change as they continue racking up more innings.
Sheldon Neuse can't be bothered by his position. He just wants to hit.
The A's are using Spring Training to familiarize themselves with one of the game's latest initiatives.
