In his next at bat, Acuna wore a fastball. He contemplated discussing things on the mound further, but decided to take his base instead.

After the game Acuna had plenty to say, including telling everyone that he wasn't going apologize for bat flipping.

I'm not a scientist, but something tells me talking shit after the game isn't going to help settle things down. It's pretty safe to say that there will be more fireworks before this series ends.
