ATLANTA (AP) Ronald Acuna Jr. says he had never before failed to hustle out of the batter's box.

Braves manager Brian Snitker made a bold move to make sure it never happens again with the 21-year-old All-Star outfielder.

With Acuna banished for styling instead of sprinting, Rafael Ortega stepped up with a sixth-inning grand slam that lifted Atlanta to a 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.
