Ronald Acuña Jr. left Sunday’s game after suffering what appeared to be a hyperextended left knee while legging out an infield single in the seventh inning. Acuña lay motionless on the field for a few moments as trainers and coaches rushed to his attention.

He was able to walk off the field.

He was able to get up and walk to the Braves’ clubhouse under his own power which seems like a victory in this instance.
Preston Tucker came on as a pinch runner to replace Acuña. We will pass along updates when they become available.
Update: The Braves announce that Acuña left Sunday’s game due to knee and lower back pain.
