Braves-Marlins brawl, Ronald Acuna Jr. hit by pitch

Open this

Acuna had been 8 for 13 with four homers in the three previous games between the teams in the series in Atlanta.

Jose Urena apparently was not going to let Ronald Acuna Jr. hit a leadoff home run for a fourth straight game.

Braves LHP Max Fried, on the 10-day disabled list with a left groin strain, will make a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday - "quicker than we originally thought", Snitker said. I mean, seriously knock him down if you don't hit him. "I tried to get inside to move him".

Order appeared to be restored until Acuna walked near the mound on his path to first base, took off a shin guard and tossed it to the edge of the mound.

I'm also hoping that Marlins manager Don Mattingly had nothing to do with this.

After the scene settled down, the umpires conferred and ejected Urena, who hit Acuna with a fastball measured at 97.5 miles per hour, from the game.

But Acuna's stay was short-lived. X-rays on Acuna's left elbow were negative, and the Braves are expected to announce results of a CT scan sometime Thursday. He left in the top of the second, walking off the field after taking his position in left field.

Urena has a history of control problems.

Ronald Acuña Jr. has been unstoppable lately, hitting a home run in his last five games. Entering the game, he was tied for second in the National League with 10 hit batters.

No suspensions have been handed down by Major League Baseball as of yet.
