A look at what’s happening around the majors today:ACUNA AGAIN!Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. has homered five games in a row — at 20 [url=]Gleyber Torres Jersey[/url] , he’s the youngest major leaguer to do that. He’s 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. They’ve 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 [url=]Tyler Austin Jersey[/url] , 3.94) at Minute Maid Park.THAT HURTSMariners ace James Paxton will see how he’s feeling, a day after he was hit in the left forearm by Jed Lowrie’s 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 he’s 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 [url=]Clint Frazier Jersey[/url] , 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 hasn’t 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. New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge is "frustrated" he hasn't been on the field while his team has fallen 10 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East."I'm not frustrated with the pace [of the healing]. I'm frustrated with being out," Judge said [url=][/url ] , per Coley Harvey of has been out since July 26, when he was hit by a pitch and suffered a chip fracture in his wrist. Harvey noted the Yankees initially said Judge would take three weeks to recover, but general manager Brian Cashman granted "we missed on the time frame" in an interview with WFAN 101.9 FM's Mike Francesa on Wednesday, adding, "It's going to be longer than that."Judge also said the cortisone shot he received Monday was something to "just kind of [get] over the hump" as he eyes a return, but he is yet to take swings with a bat in his hands since he suffered the injury, per Harvey.Last season's American League Rookie of the Year was slashing .285/.398/.548 with 26 home runs and 61 RBI in 99 games before the injury. The batting average would be a career-best mark if it continued [url=]Stephen Piscotty Jersey[/url] , but he is now well behind the 52-homer pace he set in 2017.The Yankees have treaded water without him in August at just 7-8 and now barely have the Red Sox in their sights entering the stretch run.New York still has power with Giancarlo Stanton and Didi Gregorius, but it is missing plenty of punch without Judge and catcher Gary Sanchez, who is on the 10-day disabled list with a groin injury.The Bronx Bombers are likely not going to catch Boston this season but are still 3.5 games ahead of the Oakland Athletics and six games clear of the Seattle Mariners in the race for the American League wild-card positions.All signs point toward their playing in that pressure-packed single-elimination game, and they would surely love to have Judge anchor the middle of the lineup after he garnered his first October experience last year.
