  • Benches clear after Braves’ red-hot Ronald Acuna drilled on first pitch by Marlins’ Jose Urena

The Miami Marlins - formerly the Florida Marlins until other cities in the state objected to being associated with the franchise - had been humiliated by the Braves for three straight games. "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's just part of the baseball code", Hernandez said.

No rule - written or unwritten - excuses Jose Ureña's "purpose" pitch to Braves' Ronald Acuña Jr.

Urena's fastball was timed at 97 miles per hour. After the melee calmed down, the umpires huddled and then home plate umpire Chad Fairchild ejected Urena and warned both benches.

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman said Urena's pitch was "clearly intentional" and hopes the Miami hurler faces discipline. That led to a protest from Marlins manager Don Mattingly. 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.

The benches clear as both teams meet at the mound.

After all, he said, it's not like Urena threw at Acuna's head, which is where Hernandez said on Thursday that he draws the line.

Acuña stayed in after being hit but left before the top of the second inning.

So far, the news is good for Acuña with X-rays coming back negative according to USA TODAY.

Urena has a history of control problems. The 20-year-old Acuna went into the game having homered in five straight games, including four homers in the three games against Miami - three of them leading off. Entering the game, he was tied for second in the National League with 10 hit batters.
