Marlins hit Acuña with 1st pitch, 3 ejected; Braves win 1-0

ATLANTA (AP) — Marlins starter Pablo López was ejected after plunking Ronald Acuña Jr. with his first pitch, leading to the only run as the Atlanta Braves edged Miami 1-0. Atlanta got just two hits and still won its third in a row. The Marlins have a history of hitting Acuña. Miami pitcher José Ureña was tossed after nailing with his first pitch in 2018 and López didn’t last any longer. López was ejected for hitting Acuña in the back of the left arm and manager Don Mattingly soon was ejected, too, for arguing on his pitcher’s behalf. Acuña advanced to third on Freddie Freeman’s single and scored on a sacrifice fly by Ozzie Albies.
