Acuna got hit for no reason other than being good. MLB, you’re up

Joe Torre – former Brave, former Braves manager – is MLB’s chief baseball officer. He’s the guy who metes out penalties.

Tired of Acuna hitting their pitches, the Marlins hit him instead

Tired of Acuna hitting their pitches, the Marlins hit him instead

That’s one way (and not a particularly sporting one) to keep Ronald Acuna from hitting a home run on the first pitch – hit him with the first pitch. That’s what Jose Urena of Miami did Wednesday night. It was also Urena’s last pitch.
