Braves, Marlins brawl after Acuna hit by first pitch of game

Braves, Marlins brawl after Acuna hit by first pitch of game

The former Met stood behind his explanation in the SNY booth during the Mets-Orioles game Wednesday night, when he said Marlins pitcher Jose Urena hitting Acuna with the first pitch in an eventual 5-2 Braves win was only right considering how hot the Braves rookie had been at the plate.

Acuna - who will turn 21 in December - sat on the ground and was tended to by Braves medical personnel for a number of minutes as players and coaches convened from both sides, exchanging a few shoves but mostly heated yelling.

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.

The new architecture is created to enable realistic-looking light and shadow effects or what the industry calls " ray tracing ". The Tensor Cores accelerate deep-learning training and they provide up to 500 trillion tensor operations per second.

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. "I'm sorry. I mean, people are not going to like that, but you've got to hit him and knock him down - I mean seriously knock him down if you're going to hit him".

"That kid didn't deserve that".

Urena was immediately ejected from the game and both benches were warned.

Sarah Sanders' Claim About Obama's Black Job Creation Was Way Off
She accused the president of using his rowdy political rallies to sow discord, even suggesting Trump is promoting violence. Trump took the fight up another level when he tweeted that Manigault Newman was a "dog" on Tuesday.

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman said Urena's pitch was "clearly intentional" and hopes the Miami hurler faces discipline. He left in the top of the second, walking off the field after taking his position in left field. X-rays on Acuna's left elbow were negative, and the Braves are expected to announce results of a CT scan sometime Thursday.

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

He tied the Atlanta record of five straight games with a homer, set by Brian McCann in 2006.
