Braves back to .500 after comeback win over Phillies

Ronald Acuña Jr. hit one of the most impressive homers you can see. But the value of his powerful three-hit night may have actually been trumped by the ones constructed by Austin Riley and William Contreras.

But that solo shot wasn’t any more important than the key hits Riley and Contreras tallied during a five-run eighth that gave the Braves a 9-5 comeback win over the Phillies on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park.

“That was just a good, hard-fought win,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “We lost a lead and then came back. A lot of really good things happened.”
