A bizarre scene broke out at Monday night’s Braves–Rockies game in Denver.
During the seventh-inning stretch at Coors Field, two fans ran into right field and made contact with Braves star Ronald Acuna Jr., who wound up being knocked to the ground amid the craziness.
A fan first ran over to Acuna Jr. and hugged him. As multiple security guards were trying to get that fan off of Acuna Jr., a second fan came darting toward the four-time All-Star.
Acuna Jr. stuck out his arm in an apparent attempt to keep the second fan away from him and as a security guard stepped in to separate the two, Acuna Jr. was knocked to the ground.
Acuna Jr. appeared to exchange words with the fans as they were escorted away by security.
Acuna Jr., who hit his 29th homer and recorded his 60th stolen base earlier in the night, seemed to be OK after falling to the ground as he remained in the game.
In the next half-inning, Acuna Jr. singled and stole his 61st stolen base. He ended his night with a bases-clearing double in the ninth inning, finishing 4-for-5 with five RBIs, one walk and two steals in a 14-4 Braves rout.
