Keith Hernandez supports drilling Acuna: 'You've got to hit him'

Security guard faceplants while chasing after fan during Braves postgame show

Well, the Miami Marlins figured out one way to make sure Ronald Acuna doesn't hit a leadoff home run against them. In Wednesday's finale, the Marlins flipped the script in a painful way when starting pitcher Jose Urena drilled Acuña with the Marlins first pitch of the game. Braves Manager Brian Snitker, who had reacted angrily to the incident, was also tossed.

"Fastest pitch he's thrown all year and it was clearly intentional and it wasn't right", Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman said.

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

Keith Hernandez, who played 17 years in Major League Baseball and now does color commentary for New York Mets games on SportsNet New York, supported the Miami Marlins' decision to plunk Acuna.

A CT scan performed Wednesday night on Atlanta Braves phenom Ronald Acuna Jr.'s left elbow turned up normal and he is considered day-to-day, the team announced Thursday.

There was initial concern that Acuna might miss an extended period of time but it appears the Braves dodged a bullet with regards to a long-term injury. Snitker and Ureña were then ejected from the game and Elieser Hernandez entered in Ureña's place. Charlie Culberson, who doubled, scored from third on Ender Inciarte's grounder to first base. Inciarte, who had a run-scoring single in the sixth, drove in two runs.

Snitker believed Urena meant to hit Acuna with the pitch. He became the first player to hit leadoff shots in three straight games since Baltimore's Brady Anderson led off with homers in four straight games in 1996. He tied for the major league lead with 14 hit batters in 2017.

Marlins: Miami, off Thursday, opens a weekend series at Washington on Friday night. Teheran is 5-1 with a 2.21 ERA in nine career starts against Colorado.
