Lopez ejected from the game after hitting Acuna with his very first pitch. 

Is there some bad blood between these two clubs that would lead to such a quick trigger finger from the umpire? Was he blatantly drilled?

I can't recall any drama. It looked like Lopez was just trying to work the inside of the plate. Didn't look intentional at all. No wonder Mattingly blew a gasket.

That’s one of the dumbest ejections I’ve ever seen. There’s a history with Jose Urena drilling Acuna intentionally because he’s bush league and weak and couldn’t get Acuna out, but there’s nothing between Acuna and Lopez. As a Lopez owner who was worried about him getting blown up in Atlanta 🤷‍♂️.

The Reds scorer is the worst in baseball no doubt. Rules a hit last night on the profar error that cost the Padres the game and now rules a hit against Sonny Gray after an obvious error by India. Every Sonny start I've watched this season an error has been ruled a hit against them and most of them from his own teams scorer

Yeah, same here. I started him but I'm not shedding any tears over the ejection.

Patino not looking so good, very jittery, all over the strike zone, made a throwing error on a ball back to the mound. Not an encouraging outing thus far, tough matchup but still he's overthrowing his fastball.

Mills is such a Jekyll/Hyde guy, he either dominates or has nothing, either alternating starts, or he'll have 2 good, 2 bad, 3 good, 3 bad. I can't ever trust him for fantasy. I'm also not sure what to make of these black caps the Cubbies are wearing, definitely weird but if they help us get a road W I'll take anything.

Bauer placed on administrative leave.  A rare W for Manfred.  For those with him on fantasy teams, be prepared for the leave to extend past the normal 7 days.  With justification to the union they can do that like they did with Addison Russel 

guilty until proven innocent.

The Reds completely forget how to hit everytime Sonny pitches. 1 hit against Alec Mills, hilarious

Injured hammy. Thats one way to stop him from hitting homers everyday.

Manoah looking dominant.

Keeping a close eye on that pitch count, he could have a special night, this Rays team is not hitting right now. Vladdy just missed one, Kiermaier caught it with a little hop at the warning track.

I should roster all of the Phillies late game relievers so I can understand what true hatred is. Rumor has it this guy owned several Phillies closers this season:

Would like to thank the Phils bullpen for blowing another Wheeler win

😡😡

Phillies starters are going to have to pitch complete games to get  wins. They already let wheeler go 114 pitches just because they can't trust their BP guys.

Decent start  by McCullers tonight - but very inefficient (94 pitches through 5, 5 hits 3BB).

I'm hoping he's done with that big lead - the win is nearly assured without Jose in there tonight.

Damnit I knew it was trouble when Votto came up against a reliever with 2 men on...2 run double, waste a great outing from Mills and now the Cubs are down 2-1.

Oh wow, Brad Miller did something. Easiest spot in the world, broke like an 0-23 slump in style. Maybe he'll get some PT now that Maton was sent down today. 

EDIT: The ball didn't go out but maybe he'll get to keep the 3 R HR if they're really nice...awww too bad

Yes yes yes - they trot him out for the 6th and he walks another batter allows another hit and now it's 6-3 after his reliever gives up the 3R HR.

Who could have seen this coming.
