Braves Beat Marlins 1-0 After Early Fireworks

Winning is nice, a shutout is cool and extending a winning streak is encouraging, but I know what you’re here for.

The Braves beat the Marlins 1-0 at Truist Park on Friday night, but there was really only one moment in that game worth spending a lot of time on. Positives and negatives from the game go by the wayside; this entire game started and ended on one pitch in the bottom of the first. Pablo Lopez hit Ronald Acuña Jr. on the first pitch a Braves hitter saw in the game, the sixth time in less than three calendar years a Miami pitcher has hit Acuña.
