Albies went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 13-5 loss to the Blue Jays. He got to a fading Robbie Ray in the seventh inning for Atlanta's first runs of the night, but the team was already in a 10-0 hole at that point. Albies extended his hitting streak to five games with the blast, and over that stretch he's gone 9-for-21 (.429) with two of his five homers on the year, four doubles, five RBI and six runs.
Albies went 3-for-5 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 10-0 rout of the Cubs. The second baseman capped Atlanta's offensive eruption by taking Alec Mills deep in the fifth inning for his fourth homer of the year. Albies has found his groove at the plate, going 9-for-26 (.346) over the last seven games with four doubles and two home runs.
Albies went 1-for-4 with a walk, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 8-7 win over the Cubs. It took 20 games, but the 24-year-old second baseman finally stole his first base of the season. Albies has struggled at the plate right along with most of the Atlanta lineup through the first few weeks, and he's slashing .169/.265/.366 with three homers, 10 RBI and 10 runs.
Albies went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks. The second baseman has a slow start to the season, but Albies may be coming out of his funk. Over his last nine games he's gone just 7-for-31 (.226), but six of his hits (three doubles and all three of his homers on the year) have gone for extra bases.
Albies (calf) will start at second base and bat fifth Tuesday against the Yankees. Atlanta won't have star outfielder Ronald Acuna (abdomen) in its lineup for the series opener, but the return of Albies from a two-game absence is a decent consolation prize. After struggling to a .139/.162/.278 slash line while batting second in each Atlanta's first 10 games, Albies has shown improvement since moving to the middle of the order. He's posted a 1.193 OPS in his four games batting fourth or fifth in the lineup.
