Last August, Miami Marlins right-hander Jose Urena was suspended for six games after intentionally hitting Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. with a pitch.

The Braves have long memories, apparently, as Friday night's starter Kevin Gausman threw behind Urena during his first at-bat. Gausman was promptly ejected and replaced with right-hander Touki Toussaint.

During a pre-game interview, Gausman said the incident with Acuna "was in the past," according to Walter Villa of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He didn't say much postgame.

"The umpires thought there was a reason behind it and decided to throw me out of the game," he said, according to 680 The Fan. "Obviously, MLB is going to look at it and investigate it. I'm not really going to comment on anything further than that."

Braves skipper Brian Snitker said there's a chance Gausman's next outing will come earlier than scheduled since he only threw 28 pitches before his ejection.

Urena was playing against the Braves for the first time since throwing at Acuna last season.

Despite the recent bad blood between the teams, no warning was issued prior to the game, according to Craig Mish of SiriusXM.
