Atlanta Braves Ronald Acuna Jr. added a stolen base in one week despite the aftermath of a dune ball.
Acuna started as the first right fielder in an away game against the Miami Marlins held at Londippo Park on the 3rd (Korean time).
In the second game of the double header against the New York Mets the previous day, Acuna, who was hit in the left shoulder by Tyler Megill’s 93.4 mph fastball in the first inning, did not show any major abnormalities as a result of a detailed examination, but it seemed that he would rest for a day or so.
He would also sit down as he did at the time of the sand dune, grab his shoulders and make a painful expression for about a minute, then get help from his trainer and finally go into the dugout. A serious injury was expected by anyone. However, as a result of the examination, it was found that there were no problems with the bones, muscles and ligaments.
Still, the bruises remained, so he had to take a break for 1-2 days, but he went ahead with the start on this day. However, Acuna’s play was no different from before the injury. 토스카지노
In the first at-bat in the top of the first inning, Acuna hit a 99-mph fastball from Miami starter Sandy Alcantara and hit a double in mid-month. Acuna, who withdrew from swinging strikeouts in the second and fifth innings in a row, also walked with a walk after two outs in the top of the sixth inning, leading 3-0, and then Matt Olson succeeded in stealing second base at bat.
In the ball count 2S, the moment Miami pitcher Matt Barnes threw an 84 mph curveball on the third pitch, he quickly quit the start and settled down comfortably on second base. Miami catcher Jacob Starlings caught Barnes’ one-bound curveball and accurately threw it to second base, but Acuna’s hands were quick with a head-first slide.
It is the first time in a week since the game against the Miami Marlins on the 26th of last month that Akuna stole a base.
Marking 14 stolen bases on the season, Acuna maintained first place in both leagues in this category. The gap between the second place group Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh), Jazz Chizholm Jr. (Miami), Cedric Mullins (Baltimore), and Esteuri Lewis (Oakland) widened to three.
Acuna scored a sacrifice fly to the right fielder in the 8th inning, leading 3-0, with one out and bases loaded, adding an RBI.
