A look at whats happening around the majors today:ACUNA AGAIN!Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. has homered five games in a row at 20 Paul Molitor Jersey , hes the youngest major leaguer to do that. Hes also hit leadoff home runs in three straight, connecting the last two days on the first pitch Miami threw.Acuna later added his 19th homer with a three-run drive in the seventh inning Tuesday night.Brady Anderson was last player with so much leadoff success, homering four straight times to start games for Baltimore in 1996.Acuna has matched the Atlanta record for consecutive games with a home run set by Brian McCann in 2006. Acuna will try to keep the streaks going when the Braves face Jose Urena and the Marlins at SunTrust Park.SKIDDINGMinus MVP Jose Altuve, the AL West-leading Astros are struggling. Theyve matched a season high with five straight losses, have dropped nine in a row at home, and their lead in the AL West is down to just a game over surging Oakland. Houston will try to reverse the slides when Gerrit Cole (10-5, 2.75 ERA) starts vs. Colorado lefty Tyler Anderson (6-4 Tony Oliva Jersey , 3.94) at Minute Maid Park.THAT HURTSMariners ace James Paxton will see how hes feeling, a day after he was hit in the left forearm by Jed Lowries line drive. The big lefty was forced to leave in the first inning at Oakland and diagnosed with a bruise. Paxton is 10-5, including a no-hitter vs. Toronto, and a 3.68 ERA for the playoff contenders.GETTING CLOSEThe Cubs will check on Yu Darvish and if hes OK, the right-hander could go on a minor league rehab assignment. Darvish threw about 55 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday.Sidelined because of triceps and elbow injuries, Darvish has not pitched since he won at Cincinnati on May 20. He is 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA in eight starts after signing a $126 million, six-year deal with Chicago in February.MAYBESecond baseman Ian Kinsler could return from a strained left hamstring when the Red Sox play at Philadelphia. The 36-year-old was sent from the Angels to Boston late last month before the trade deadline. In three games for his new team http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-max-kepler-jersey , the four-time All-Star went 4 for 10, scored three runs, stole two bases and made a couple of sharp plays in the field.SHORT STARTSChris Archer starts for the third time since being traded from Tampa Bay to Pittsburgh. The two-time All-Star hasnt gone more than five innings so far for the Pirates, and will try to add a little length when he pitches at Minnesota.STREAKINGMets right-hander Zack Wheeler (7-6, 3.82 ERA) tries to win his sixth straight start when he pitches at Camden Yards. He held the Orioles scoreless over seven innings June 6, but did not get a decision. SAN DIEGO (AP) Javy Guerra raced around the bases with one thought in mind. And even if third base coach Glenn Hoffman had held up his hands, Guerra was going to ignore them.Freddy Galvis doubled home Guerra from first base with the winning run in the 15th inning Friday night to give the San Diego Padres a 3-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks in a game that lasted 5 hours Kennys Vargas Jersey , 2 minutes.Even if I get the stop sign, I wasnt to going stop, Guerra said. Right away I was going to home plate.Hunter Renfroes pinch-hit homer for the Padres with two outs in the 12th tied the score at 2. Renfroe was a late scratch from the starting lineup because he was ill.He wasnt feeling good at all today, manager Andy Green said. I kept asking if he had a Kirk Gibson moment in him or a Michael Jordan flu game. He said he had a swing in him, and thats what he had in him. He was able to go out there and gut it out in the outfield. That was gutsy from him.Archie Bradley gave up Renfroes tying drive.He was fairly upset about it walking back into the dugout, Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. I know that Renfroe is a very capable hitter and if you make a mistake to him in the middle of the zone, hes going to punish the ball. Archies been very effective as of late and felt like it was the right situation. He just made one mistake.Guerra drew a pinch-hit walk from Matt Andriese (0-3) leading off the 15th and scored on Galvis double to right field.Colten Brewer (1-0) worked two innings for his first major league win.Its something that I will remember for a long time http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-max-kepler-jersey , Brewer said. I couldnt be happier and its especially gratifying when it came in a long game like that. I just wanted to pitch in the big leagues and to get a win feels even better than I imagined.Nick Ahmeds sacrifice fly put the Diamondbacks ahead 2-1 in the top of the 12th. Ahmed sent a shallow fly ball toward Franmil Reyes in right and initially Ketel Marte wasnt going to try to advance from third base. But when Reyes was tardy in throwing the ball in, Marte took off and was safe on a close play at the plate.Jose Pirelas home run off Diamondbacks reliever Silvino Bracho in the seventh tied it 1-all. Arizona had taken the lead in the top of the inning when Chris Owings scored on a passed ball.Padres rookie starter Eric Lauer allowed singles to the first two batters he faced after limiting the Dodgers to one run over five innings in his previous outing. But the lefty tiptoed out of trouble in the first two innings.From there, Lauer settled down. He gave up an unearned run and seven hits with six strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings.Owings opened the seventh with a single and John Ryan Murphy followed with a double. With the infield in, Galvis made a spectacular, over-the-shoulder catch in short center field on pinch-hitter Patrick Kivlehans popup to hold the runners.Marte drew a walk to load the bases and then rookie catcher Francisco Mejia let Robert Stocks outside pitch bounce off his glove. Owings scored to make it 1-0.Arizona starter Patrick Corbin went five scoreless innings. He allowed three hits and a walk while striking out four but remained winless since Sept. 7.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: RHP Brett Kennedy (left knee) had surgery and is expected to be healthy for spring training.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (14-11, 4.75 ERA) starts the middle game of the series Saturday looking to snap a four-start losing streak. His last win came on Aug. 29 against the Giants. Godley is 3-4 with a 5.40 ERA in his career against the Padres.Padres: RHP Jacob Nix (2-4, 6.81) makes his second career start versus Arizona Rod Carew Jersey , with both outings coming at Petco Park. He was charged with five runs and five hits while getting only two outs when facing the Diamondbacks on Aug. 16.
