Marlins Starting Pitcher Got Ejected After Hitting Ronald Acuna Jr. With His First Pitch

SJ - July 3, 2021

One of the most bizarre first innings of all-time took place in Atlanta on Friday night.  It all started when Marlins starter Pablo Lopez threw his first pitch in the bottom of the first inning.

The pitch hit Braves star Ronald Acuna Jr. on his arm pad.  He didn't seem to be too upset by the hit by pitch, but his manager Brian Snitker made up for that.

Snitker jumped out of the dugout and immediately started crying.  His tears were heard by the umpires, who decided to have a quick circle jerk before ejecting Lopez.

Does Acuna seem to get hit when he plays the Marlins?  Yes, but that doesn't mean every time he gets hit that it's intentional or that the pitcher should be ejected.

Acuna also stands right on top of the motherfucking plate.  You're going to get hit standing that close.

This is umpires proving once again how completely incapable they are handling the responsibilities assigned to them.  And fuck Snitker's soft doughy ass.
