ATLANTA (AP) — Ronald Acuna Jr. struck out twice and reached base once in his first six at-bats against Nationals ace Max Scherzer.“I think it helps having some previous at-bats against him http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-jake-marisnick-jersey ,” Acuna said through a translator. “I just went in with the same approach. I wanted to have fun out there on the field and have good at-bats.”Acuna went 4 for 5, had two RBIs and scored the tiebreaking run in the fourth inning to help the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves win their season-best sixth straight game with a 10-5 victory over the Washington Nationals on Friday night.The Braves stayed 7½ games ahead of second-place Philadelphia. Any combination of nine Atlanta victories or Phillies’ losses will give the Braves their first division title since 2013.Scherzer (17-7) endured his shortest outing of the year, four innings, while allowing six runs — a season high — and seven hits in 102 pitches.Scherzer, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, was no match for Acuna, one of baseball’s hottest hitters since the All-Star break.The 20-year-old left fielder doubled off the wall in his first at-bat. He drove in two runs with a bloop single in the second. He tripled and scored the tiebreaking run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth. His single in the eighth gave Acuna a single-game high in hits.Juan Soto, Washington’s 19-year-old left fielder, was impressive, too, homering in his fourth straight game and running a long way to catch a liner in the third. Soto scored the game’s first run in the second after beating a tag on Acuna’s throw to third. His 20th homer was a solo shot in the fourth.“I would say I’m definitely having fun sharing the field with him,” Acuna said, “but I’m always going out there to have a good time on the field every time.”The third-place Nationals had won four of five, but they dropped to 74-74 and can be eliminated from the division race by any combination of six Atlanta wins or Washington losses.Kevin Gausman (10-10) gave up seven hits, two walks and four runs — three earned — in 5 2/3 innings. Gausman improved to 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA in eight starts since the Braves acquired him in a trade with Baltimore.Scherzer, the majors’ active career leader in strikeouts, threw 31 pitches in the second, the worst coming on a two-out, eight-pitch walk to Gausman that loaded the bases. Acuna Michael Saunders Jersey , the next batter, fought off a slider on his hands to drop the ball into shallow right field and make it 2-all.“I think with a pitcher of his stature, the only way you’re going to get to him really is to tire him out,” Gausman said. “It was pretty hot, and when you have a long inning like that — yeah, the guys were stringing together some pretty good at-bats and made him work.”Scherzer was sweating so profusely in the second that he had to replace his hat after Acuna’s hit. Sweat was rolling off the bill of his cap, affecting Scherzer’s vision, and he appeared to be struggling with his grip on the ball.“I wasn’t able to get in rhythm,” Scherzer said. “I never felt I had good command of any of my pitches. I could never get in sync.”Atlanta led 4-2 in the third on Tyler Flowers’ two-run single. After Soto’s homer and Wilmer Difo’s RBI double forced a tie in the fourth, Acuna answered in the bottom half of the inning, tripling and scoring on Freeman’s sacrifice fly. Markakis’ RBI single put Atlanta up 6-4.Charlie Culberson’s infield RBI single put the Braves up 7-4 in the sixth. Bryce Harper had an RBI groundout in the sixth for Washington. Markakis drove in two of the Braves’ three runs in the eighth.HE SAID, HE SAIDWashington slugger Bryce Harper and home plate umpire Laz Diaz were arguing with each other much of the night. It started when Harper disagreed with a call in the fifth and continued when Harper was in center field as they yelled at each other during the next inning. It stopped short of reaching a boiling point in the seventh when Diaz called a strike on a pitch that was clearly off the plate. Harper argued with Diaz while looking straight ahead, not making eye contact with the umpire. Nationals manager Dave Martinez came from the dugout to back Harper, but Diaz did not eject either.“I’m not going to make any comment on balls and strikes there, but umpires are supposed to be non-confrontational,” Martinez said. “They’re supposed to uphold the peace on the baseball field. For me MLB needs to take a look at that. . (Diaz) is saying things to Harp, and I thought that was uncalled for.”TRAINER’S ROOMAtlanta 3B Johan Camargo missed his second straight game with left groin tightness. … The Braves returned RHP Arodys Vizcaino from a rehab assignment and reinstated him from the 60-day disabled list. Manager Brian Snitker said Vizcaino, the team’s closer during parts of each of the last three years, will not be used in high leverage situations immediately. Vizcaino missed 63 games with right shoulder inflammation.TIME GONE BYThe 3 hour http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , 54-minute game was the longest nine-inning game Atlanta has played since April 10, 2016 against St. Louis. The last time the Braves played a longer game without needing a bottom of the ninth was June 3, 2000 against the Yankees.UP NEXTNationals: RHP Jeremy Hellickson (5-3, 3.57 ERA) will make his 19th start and first since Aug. 15 at St. Louis. He missed 21 games with a right wrist sprain and was sidelined 22 games earlier this year with a right hamstring strain. Hellickson is 2-0 with a 3.18 ERA in six career starts against Atlanta.Braves: RHP Julio Teheran (9-7, 3.95 ERA) will make his 29th start. Atlanta has won three of his last five outings. Teheran has been hit hard by the Nationals this year, going 0-1 with a 7.56 ERA in two starts. He is 6-5 with a 4.12 ERA in 20 career starts against Washington. BOSTON (AP) — Noah Syndergaard was still wearing a plastic bib from a local seafood chain when he spoke to reporters after shutting down the Red Sox in his first-ever appearance at Fenway Park.For the Mets, it was a feast all around.Syndergaard pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, and New York hit four homers on Friday night to cool off the Red Sox 8-0 and snap Boston’s four-game winning streak. The Mets right-hander struck out six and walked three to lead the Mets to their fourth straight victory and sixth win in their last seven games.“That was just a fun ballgame on all fronts,” Syndergaard (12-3) said. “The offense really came alive. The defense made some great plays behind me.”The Red Sox, who lead the majors with 101 victories, had their lead over the New York Yankees in the AL East reduced to 9½ games. The only team in baseball to have already secured a playoff berth, Boston’s magic number to clinch its third straight division title remained at six.The Mets (69-78) are technically still alive in the NL East but could be eliminated as early as this weekend despite winning 25 of their last 40 games. A lot of the credit for the goes to Syndergaard, who has won 10 of his last 12 decisions, and Cy Young contender Jacob deGrom, who hasn’t allowed more than three runs in 26 straight starts.“You go through ups and downs, but overall it’s been a pretty good rotation this season,” manager Mickey Callaway said. “It’s good that they’re finishing strong.”Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer in the third, Austin Jackson hit a two-run shot in the eighth, and Jeff McNeil and Amed Rosario had solo shots for New York. McNeil and Brandon Nimmo made diving catches in the outfield Wily Peralta Jersey , and Syndergaard won a footrace covering first base in the third inning to end Boston’s only real threat.Ian Kinsler singled and stole second, Jackie Bradley Jr. walked and they pulled off an uncontested double steal — the only time in the game a Red Sox runner reached third base. Andrew Benintendi hit a grounder to second, and Syndergaard barely beat him to the bag as dove head-first.The Mets starter also picked Kinsler off first in the seventh.“He’s got great stuff,” Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez said. “He throws hard. He’s not just a chucker. He knows where the ball is going. He puts the ball where he wants it.”Bruce also had a run-scoring double in the first against Red Sox emergency starter William Cuevas, who was making his first major league start because Hector Velazquez got sick. Cuevas (0-1) allowed back-to-back doubles to Michael Conforto and Bruce in the first, and then left after giving up Rosario’s leadoff single in the third.Robby Scott hit Conforto with one out and then gave up Bruce’s homer to right. McNeil made it 5-0 in the fourth and Jackson cleared the Green Monster and the billboards above it to give the Mets a 7-0 lead. One out later, Rosario also put one over the left-field wall to make it 8-0 and chase Tyler Thornburg.RATS!The Mets had an unwelcome visitor to their dugout in the fourth inning: a rat that sent the players scurrying away. No word on whether it was the same one that spooked the Red Sox in their dugout on Tuesday night. They paid tribute to their guest with a (presumably fake) rat skeleton on their dugout railing.FAN SUPPORTA healthy contingent of Mets fans helped boost the crowd of 37,117, Boston’s 40th sellout of the year. They cheered the visiting team’s homers, but both sides seemed united when the crowd broke out in a couple of “Yankees Suck!” chants.“It was awesome, just the overall atmosphere, the history,” said Syndergaard, who visited the Green Monster scoreboard before the game. “It’s like pitching in a cathedral.”LATE SCRATCHThe Red Sox announced about four hours before the game that Velazquez was ill. Cuevas, who made 23 starts in Triple-A this year but had come out of the bullpen in all eight of his big-league appearances, allowed two runs on three hits in two-plus innings, walking one and striking out four.TRAINER’S ROOMRed Sox: RHP Matt Barnes (left hip inflammation) threw off a mound for the first time since his injury. He last pitched Sept. 3. … Infielder Eduardo Nunez got the first of two scheduled games off, a day after an awkward stumble trying to beat a throw at first base.UP NEXTThe teams play the second game of the series at 4 p.m. Saturday. RHP Rick Porcello (16-7) is scheduled to start for Boston against RHP Corey Oswalt (3-2).
