Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier was outspoken Thursday morning in his reaction to Jose Urena hitting Ronald Acuna with his first pitch Wednesday night, which sparked a melee in Atlanta. "I was pissed off. Plain and simple. ... For Urena to do that, just absolutely uncalled for -- and I'm putting that lightly. I'm not gonna use any cuss words -- I could -- [but] totally uncalled for," Kiermaier said. "And I'm speaking for a lot of other guys, but, I got a kid on the way, coming November now, so if you try to hit me on purpose, you go high and tight, that's risking health problems and, I'm not gonna say life-threatening, but, that baseball can do a lot of damage to someone."
