Ureña ejected after one pitch as streaking Acuña gets drilled, clearing benches

Ureña ejected after one pitch as streaking Acuña gets drilled, clearing benches

Acuna had hit leadoff homers in his three previous games, all against the Marlins, including a doubleheader Monday.

Atlanta Braves' Ronald Acuna Jr. reacts after being hit by a pitch from Miami Marlins' Jose Urena during the first inning of a baseball game on August 15, 2018, in Atlanta.

Acuña was in a considerable amount of pain - he ended up leaving the game in the second inning - and Atlanta's coaches and players weren't happy with Urena, leaving the dugout to protest what they thought was an intentional hit-by-pitch. It was the hardest first pitch he had ever thrown in his career, and he missed it by a Dominican country mile. Braves Manager Brian Snitker, who had reacted angrily to the incident, was also tossed.

Snitker called Urena's actions a "damn shame" after the game.

He reiterated that opinion on Sunday, based on Australia winning their most recent contest, the 2017 dead rubber. He guarantees full commitment and effort every time he plays and he never takes a backward step.

Snitker was demonstrably disturbed and was the catalyst for a second clearing of the benches shortly after the first scrum had begun clearing.

"So I stand firmly by what I said and I don't think the pitch was that bad". The kid is playing the game with joy and needs to be hurt for being great. "That was incredibly classless on Jose Urena's part". That would be embarrassing for someone who has been involved in the game for so long. The training staff signed off on Acuna returning after a CT scan on his elbow was normal.

Braves first-base coach Eric Young was suspended one game and fined an undisclosed amount for his role in the incident, Major League Baseball said Thursday.
