Albies' 100th RBI, Acuña's 140th run and Olson's 53rd homer lift the Braves past the Nationals 10-3

WASHINGTON (AP) Everyone knows about Ronald Acuña Jr., his bid to join the 40-40 club and his MVP candidacy. Matt Olson leads the majors in homers. The NL East champion Atlanta Braves know Ozzie Albies is doing his part, too.

Albies went 4 for 6, including his 32nd homer, and topped 100 RBIs in a season for the second time by driving in four runs, Acuña scored his 140th run of 2023 - the most in the majors in 16 years - and Olson delivered home run No. 53 to lift Atlanta past the last-place Washington Nationals 10-3 on Thursday night.

“What he brings, it's so vital to the whole lifeline of the whole club. I've said for years: ‘You know what? You play the game the way Ozzie does, you’re going to play it right,’” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “The kid does everything right on the field. ... Prepares. The work ethic. He’s the model player, really.”
