Braves star Acuña Jr. exits after fouling ball off left leg


AP Sports Writer

MIAMI (AP) — Atlanta Braves slugger Ronald Acuña Jr. was removed from Thursday’s game against the Miami Marlins out of precaution after he fouled a ball off his left knee in the sixth inning, just three days after he was removed against the New York Mets with a bruised left shoulder. Acuña was on the ground for a while, but finished the at bat and returned to right field in the bottom of the sixth. He was removed from the second game of Monday’s doubleheader against the Mets with a bruised left shoulder after getting hit by a 93 mph fastball from Tylor Megill.
