Marlins hit Ronald Acuna to spark fight in first inning

Braves manager Brian Snitker was furious, as it initially appeared Urena was not going to be ejected.

The 97.5 miles per hour fastball hit Acuña square in the left elbow and left the hot-hitting rookie in pain. Trainer George Poulis hovered over Acuna, who sat on the ground near the batter's box while players swarmed near the mound.

Once the brawl ended, Acuna made his way to first base and threw his shin guard in Ureña's direction.

Benches and bullpens for both teams emptied onto the field twice after the pitch. The benches cleared again, but no punches were thrown.

Snitker was ejected by third-base umpire Paul Nauert, the crew chief. He could receive a suspension, and Marlins Manager Don Mattingly will likely have to face questions about whether his starting pitcher was instructed to bean Acuna, went rogue or simply missed his location.

Acuna, who stayed in the game to run the bases, later exited while warming up before the second inning. He left in the top of the second, walking off the field after taking his position in left field.

There was no immediate update on Acuna's apparent injury.

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

Urena has a history of control problems.

Per MLB rules, consecutive-game hitting streaks remain active as long as the batter does not record an official at-bat.

Miami left fielder Austin Dean, a 2012 fourth-round draft pick called up from Triple-A New Orleans before the game, was held without a hit in his major league debut.

Acuna, 20, entered the game on a rare power streak. He hit two homers in Tuesday night's 10-6 win over the Marlins. Acuna had homered in five straight games, seven of eight, and was looking to lead off a game with a homer for the fourth straight game.
