The Marlins lost their starting pitcher after a pitch on Friday night. Pablo Lopez (Pablo Lopez) was expelled for hitting the Warriors’ Ronald Acuna Jr. triceps with a 91 mph fastball, leading the way The bottom of the game.
But Lopez was left behind only after the referee led by the captain Dan Yasonia awarded the field. They only met after Warriors coach Brian Snitker roared out of the dugout and made a fuss. Snittke was angry that another Marlins pitcher hit his star outfielder. The number of Acuna HBP against Miami has now reached 6 in 55 games, including the playoffs.
“This is the third time they have hit him in the first game of the game. I don’t know what will happen. I watch too much,” According to MLB.com, Snitker told reporters.
This process made the Marlins manager Don Mattinley believe that Snittke worked on the crew for the benefit of his team.
“Basically, Dan was bullied,” Mattinley In the post-match Zoom call with the media, he said“When it happened, no one said anything.”
Mattingly and Marlins pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre Jr. were expelled due to an argument. Mattingley has repeatedly stated that the crew “improperly handled” the situation.
“I’m really disappointed with the referee team,” he said.
Braves TV analyst Tom Glavine also disagreed with the expulsion and questioned why the referee needed to negotiate.
“If you don’t plan to immediately (expulse Lopez), then what are you meeting for?” Gravin said.
Mattingly and Lopez both said the stadium was unintentional. In fact, Lopez flinched after hitting Acuna on the court.
“That’s just a poorly executed pendant,” Lopez says“The ball just ran, and unfortunately it hit him. This is not what you wanted in the first game of the night.”
After finally getting first base, Acuna scored the only goal of the game in Atlanta’s 1-0 victory.
He said through an interpreter after the game that the previous wrestling made him unsure whether this was intentional.
“Whether it is or not, it doesn’t matter to me. My only concern is that the team won,” Acuna said that according to the Atlanta Constitution Magazine.
Mattingly said that Iassogna told him history was a factor in Lopez’s abandonment. In August 2018, after Acuna hit the Marlins in the first few games, Jose Urena hit Acuna with a 97 mph fast ball on his left elbow to lead game. Urena, like Lopez, was expelled after one pitch. Major League Baseball later suspended Urena, who now plays for the Tigers, for six games.
Mattingly insists that what happened on Friday has nothing to do with three years ago. He also tried to point out that the Warriors were not innocent.
“Absolutely nothing happened to the Warriors this year,” Mattingley said. “When Dan told me it was because of history and it always happened and always Acuna, it was not true. It was just not true. I am pretty sure (Miami third baseman) Brian Anderson has been hit since Acuna Has been hit six times since. I think (shortstop Miguel Rojas) may have (being) hit the same number of people. (former Marlin) Pete O’Brien ( Pete O’Brien) broke a rib from (Warriors pitcher Mike) Soroka, 100% intentional (2019).
“It’s over. It’s over at the age of 18. Dan told me that this is a piece of history. In the past there was a history in which someone was no longer with us.”
