Acuna posted a .559 on-base percentage, knocked in nine runs, scored 11 and also stole three bases. Marlins starter Jose Urena intentionally hit him with the first pitch of Tuesday’s game, and while Acuna exited that night, he didn’t miss any more action.
“Pretty neat,” manager Brian Snitker said. “These last 10 days, it’s something else. I heard somebody make the comment, ‘He’s going to win player of the week on Tuesday.’ It’s well-deserved. It’s good to be recognized.”
