On Sunday against the Colorado Rockies, Acuna equaled his MLB record with four hits, scoring three times in the process. He also had an incredible 441-foot solo home run in the eighth inning to give the Braves a rather comfortable 8-4 lead.
Of course after hitting that homer, Acuna pulled out the silencer celebration made popular by James.

The Braves held on to win 8-7, with Ronald Acuna Jr. certainly playing a huge role. His home run is also his third of the season.
For what it's worth, it is not the first time the Braves outfielder hit the LeBron James celebration. Earlier in May against the Milwaukee Brewers, he also channeled his inner King James following a home run in the fifth inning.
It got the approval of the Lakers leader himself, as James retweeted the video and celebrated with Acuna for the massive swing.
James has yet to react to Acuna's latest silencer, but we're guessing it won't be long until the Lakers leader sees the video and comments on it. perhaps he's just busy watching the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics.
