Acuña Jr. hit his 18th double to start the game

Additionally, "El Abusador" cheated his seventh base of 2022 in the same number of attempts

The Venezuelan Ronald Acuña Jr., figure of the Atlanta Braves, connected this Friday night his double number 18 starting a game in the Major Leagues (MLB, for its acronym in English).

Acuña Jr. reached three hits from two corners in 2022 and 81 for life in the MLB in the duel against the Miami Marlins. Thanks to that connection, the native of La Sabana, La Guaira state, equaled José Tabata in 77th place among Venezuelans with the most doubles in the "Big Tent."

Now, the outfielder is targeting José Peraza's 82 to later go for Eduardo Pérez's 85, a former Braves player and current Georgia team coach.

Additionally, "El Abusador" cheated his seventh base of 2022 in the same number of attempts to maintain 100% effectiveness.

The Venezuelan's baserunning shows that he is fully recovered from the injury he suffered, specifically on July 21, 2021, in the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee, when he tried to catch a connection at LoanDepot Park.

On this day, Acuña Jr., in the role of designated hitter, went 4-for-2 to leave his average at .280.

The Atlanta Braves managed to take the victory, which adds to the record of Charlie Morton (3-3), against the Marlins thanks to home runs by Marcell Ozuna (8), Dansby Swanson (5) and Travis d'Arnaud (4) .

Brian Snitker's squad remains in fourth place in the National League East Division with a losing record of 18-21.
