Tom Glavine was not a fan of the umpires ejecting Pablo Lopez for hitting Ronald Acuña Jr
. When the umpires tossed Miami Marlins starter Pablo Lopez for hitting leadoff batter Ronald Acuña Jr., Atlanta Braves legend Tom Glavine was not a fan of this from the broadcast cubicle.
What should be kept in mind is this is the very first game in weekend series between bitter division competitors. Neither team has actually played excellent ball this year, in spite of being postseason groups a year ago. Atlanta and Miami will deal with each other 6 times over the next nine days.
Regretfully, this will not be the last time Acuña will get struck by a fastball from a Marlins pitcher. Search for the benches to inevitably clear.
Glavine defending a Marlins pitcher who beaned Acuña was not something we anticipated to see.
What must be noted is this is the very first video game in weekend series in between bitter division competitors. Neither group has played great ball this year, regardless of being postseason groups a year ago. Atlanta and Miami will deal with each other six times over the next 9 days.
Tom Glavine rips umps for ejecting Pablo Lopez for beaning Ronald Acuña Jr
. While Glavine was never understood for his heating system on the mound, you can comprehend his frustration about seeing any pitcher get tossed after only one player, even if he did plunk the finest gamer on the team he calls games for.
Blessed with impeccable control, Glavine would never ever bean a hitter in either batters box unless he indicated to do it. The Fish do have a thirst for plunking Acuña, however.
The first-ballot Hall of Famer and 300-game winner is normally booked in the Bally Sports broadcast cubicle beside Chip Caray and Jeff Francoeur, but he could not think the opposing pitcher got tossed for plunking Acuña. While Miami pitchers have an affinity for throwing balls at the Braves right fielder, Glavine would choose the players to police themselves than to be ejected.
Not just did Lopez get tossed, however Marlins skipper Don Mattingly signed up with in him in the clubhouse.
