Ronald Acuna, Jr. has become just the third player in Major League history to hit 40 homers in a season at 21 years old or younger.

Acuna hit his historic home run in the third inning against the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday.

The Atlanta Braves' victory over the Phillies clinched the club at least a tie for first place in the National League East.

"That's the most exciting thing up to this point," Acuna said through a translator. "That's what we're all looking for. I think for all of us, it's just come out with that same energy, that same enthusiasm, get that win and hopefully celebrate. That's something we're all looking forward to."
