The Atlanta Braves phenom outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. was moved back into the leadoff spot for the first time this season on Friday, and it payed off.

Acuña's eighth-inning home run was enough to snap the Braves four-game losing streak, sealing a 2-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 466-foot homer was the longest of his young career.

"I've changed my stance on everything. Put (Acuña) where the hell he wants to play," Randy McMichael said. "I was all for 'he needs to go be the cleanup and he can bat in more runs.' Where do you want to play? Let him play there."

"To me, it just seems like he's more comfortable in that spot, and why can't Josh Donaldson be the cleanup hitter?"
