Ronald Acuña Jr. exits game after trying to leg one out at first (Video)

Ronald Acuña Jr. leaves game after hurting his ankle on a play at first base.
With this being the last video game of a homestand on vacation day, Acuña might be able to use Friday night in their series opener at the Milwaukee Brewers. He will have had more than 24 hours considering that exiting the game vs. heaven Jays on Thursday afternoon. Acuña missed 2 games with an abdominal problem back in April, but did not miss out on one after getting drilled on the hand in early May.
Overall, this has been a frustrating start to the season the for Braves. While no team in the NL East has actually played well up to this point, we have to question if it is the cards for the Braves to win another division crown and perhaps get to their very first World Series given that 1999.
While Acuñas injury does not appear to be serious, he has exited a game for a 3rd time this year.

Acuña hit his league-leading 12th crowning achievement of the season to lead off the game, but was unable to complete vs. Toronto. He was at first called safe on the play in question, but the play was reversed by the umpiring crew to rub salt in the wound. The bright side for Braves Country is he had the ability to stroll off the field on his own accord without assistance, but he did have a limp back to the dugout.
This is not the very first time Acuña left a game this year due to injury, but ideally, it is the last.
