Acuña (2 HRs), Strider (11 K’s) on cusp of history

ATLANTA — After nearing the Braves’ single-season strikeout record in the modern era during a 9-3 win over the Phillies on Tuesday night at Truist Park, Spencer Strider came to the interview room wearing a 30-60 T-shirt that was designed to commemorate Ronald Acuña Jr. becoming the first player to ever have 30 homers and 60 stolen bases in the same season.

“He’s going to negate the T-shirt they made for him pretty quickly, so I thought I’d wear it,” Strider said. “Yeah, I’m very grateful to have had a front-row seat this year to everything he has done this year. Who knows what he’ll do the rest of his career. I’m sure it will make this year look like an average year for him.”
