Braves manager Brian Snitker defending Ronald Acuna Jr. (Todd Kirkland/Getty Images).
Cubs reach a breaking point after setting harsh franchise record by Alicia de Artola.
Atlanta supervisor Brian Snitker stood up for Ronald Acuña after another Miami Marlins HBP and Braves fans definitely liked it.
The Marlins and the Braves have a history, particularly when it pertains to Ronald Acuña.
Individuals are now wondering what will happen if the Marlins struck Acuñan again.
It appears like we have to have this very same stupid discussion every series with the Marlins. It didnt exactly work out well for the Marlins this time. In addition to getting the beginning pitcher ejected, Acuña scored the winning run off a sacrifice fly in the very first inning.
Snit got Lopez Mattingly and Stottlemyer( sp?) thats a triple kill.

When Miami pitcher Pablo Lopez hit Acuña in the side with the really first pitch of the game on Friday, Atlanta supervisor Brian Snitker made sure there were repercussions.
Snitker stormed out of the dugout and grumbled to the umpires, who chose to throw Lopez out of the video game.
Braves fans were pleased with Brian Snitkers defense of Ronald Acuña Jr
. Fans in Atlanta were rather shocked by the turn of the occasions, particularly the reaction of the manager many feel isnt vocal enough.
Weve all been pleading Snit to get thrown out, however he just got the OPPOSING MANAGER THROWN OUT!

Snitker addressed the question Braves fans have been asking of him.
Funnily enough, some would have enjoyed just to see him kick up a hassle, even if he got ejected. Rather, Marlins supervisor Don Mattingly was the one who got tossed.
Mainly, fans were thankful to see Snitker stand up for Acuña, who has been struck by pitches eight times this year and has been struck by the Marlins particularly 5 times in his profession.
Glad to see Snit come out to defend Ronald after that HBP.

Its set up to be a fascinating series, with two more games of prospective drama on deck.
Can we stop stating Snit does not stick up for Ronald now?

It didnt exactly exercise well for the Marlins this time. In addition to getting the beginning pitcher ejected, Acuña scored the winning run off a sacrifice fly in the very first inning. He was on base because of the HBP.
I honestly dont think Lopez attempted to hit Ronald. In this scenario, you have to toss him. Excellent task by Snit of ensuring it happened.

The broadcast and others were vital of the umpires for the quick ejection, but fans stood by the supervisor and his problem.
Im no @Jomboy_, however looks like Snit said “No. No. Ive seen enough of this shit” and hes 100%. It appears like we have to have this exact same dumb discussion every series with the Marlins. Its ludicrous.

I truthfully do not believe Lopez attempted to strike Ronald. (@tomabernathy) July 2, 2021.
Im with Snit: Enough of this shit. 5 times striking our superstar is too lots of.
