In the fifth inning, Acuña broke the scoreless deadlock with a massive swing on Corbin Burnes' 88 mph low pitch. After the hit, he pulled out LeBron's signature “The Silencer.” Of course the Lakers forward saw it and loved both the home run and the celebration.
Yessir!!!! Went yard then hit the "Silencer"!! Ayyyyyyeee ✊🏾👑 https://t.co/hRoDgnFbOo

It is already the second night in a row that Ronald Acuña Jr. has hit a homer against the Brewers, as if the Braves star is sending a message that pitchers better be ready for his power and what he can do with the bat.
As for LeBron James, he is clearly enjoying his time off after a rather messy season with the Lakers. The Purple and Gold were unable to make the playoffs–not even qualifying for the play-in–after finishing 11th in the West, but that hasn't stopped King James from being involved in the NBA.
Clearly, though, he is not just focusing on the NBA playoffs. As his tweet about the Braves and Acuña proves, he is making the most of his rare opportunity to watch the MLB season as well.
