Seeing slugging rookie Ronald Acuna Jr., who had been on a home-run streak, hit by Jose Urena's first pitch led to two melees on the field and more unrest in the clubhouse.

Dansby Swanson filled the power void left by Acuna's exit, hitting a two-run homer that led the Braves to a 5-2 win over Miami on Wednesday night.

It was a good-natured gesture toward a few of Gordon's teammates who were ribbing him as he rounded the bases. It was also an expression of relief for the Mariners, who lost the first two games of this series after sweeping first-place Houston on the road.
