The Atlanta Braves defeated the Miami Marlins 5-2 despite the loss of Ronald Acuna Jr in a fiery game.
Braves rookie Acuna exited Wednesday's MLB clash after being hit by the first pitch he saw.
Acuna, who led off each of the first three games in the series with a home run against the Marlins, took a fastball to the elbow from starter Jose Urena, causing an enraged Atlanta dugout to storm the field.
Acuna left the game after being hit, and Urena was ejected.
"I think it's pretty evident what I thought about it," Braves manager Brian Snitker said after the game. "You know, it's a shame. This young man is just playing the game, doing what he loves to do and it's a damn shame what happened that first pitch of the game."
He added: "He is my kid and I am going to protect him."
Even Miami's manager Don Mattingly chimed in: "I don't want to see this kid get hit. He's a great player and he's going to be great for a long time, and for us he's beat us up, but this is not the way we want to handle that situation."
X-Rays on Acuna's elbow were negative. Also, on a statistical note, his streak of five successive games with a home run is intact due to the fact he was hit by a pitch in his only plate appearance.
GORDON LEADS MARINERS
Dee Gordon stole the show in the Seattle Mariners' 2-0 win over the Oakland Athletics. Gordon hit his second home run of the year in the 12th inning to give Seattle a 2-0 lead.
Gordon has been known to come through for the Pacific Northwest squad as five of his last homers gave the Mariners the lead.
ORIOLES ENDURE WOEFUL GAME
The Baltimore Orioles gave up 16 runs on 19 hits against the New York Mets, and Dylan Bundy surrendered the bulk of it in a 16-5 loss. He allowed 11 hits and seven earned runs in 5.3 innings of work. Bundy dropped to 7-11 on the season with a 4.99 ERA.
Curtis Granderson hit the 10th grand slam of his career against the Kansas City Royals and with it gave the Toronto Blue Jays a 6-5 victory.
