It wasn't 'strategy' it was the first batter of the game. It was clearly revenge for Acuna showboating his HR's the last few days, and obviously intentional. Thus the suspension. And a lesson learned for young Mr Acuna as well.I've never understood the "strategy" to throw at someone. Look there is a need to throw inside, I get that. I think the other thing to note in this case was the pitcher had absolutely no emotion. If a pitch "gets away" there is generally some gesture to let the hitter know "my bad". Urena basically just stared Acuna down, and that makes it look really intentional.
