Albies went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, four RBI and two runs in a 12-3 victory against the Mets on Monday. Like a lot of the Braves hitters, Albies is red hot at the moment. Not only does the 22-year-old have hits in eight of his last nine games, he has six multi-hit contests during that stretch. Also occurring in that span, Albies has four homers and 13 RBI. Behind this hot streak, the 22-year-old is now hitting .286 with 11 home runs, 39 RBI, 46 runs and five steals in 290 at-bats this season.
Albies went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and two RBI in Sunday's rout of the Phillies. It's his sixth multi-hit performance in the last 10 games, a stretch during which Albies is slashing a blistering .410/.489/.821 with five doubles, a triple, three homers, 10 RBI, 11 runs, a steal and a 5:4 BB:K. The whole Atlanta offense seems to be firing on all cylinders at the moment, giving the 22-year-old plenty of opportunities to turn his hits into production even if he continues to hit near the bottom of the lineup.
Albies went 2-for-5 with a walk, two doubles, an RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 8-7 extra-innings win over the Pirates. The 22-year-old's second two-bagger of the night was the big one, as it brought Austin Riley home in the bottom of the 11th to win the game for Atlanta. Albies has quietly been on fire from the bottom of the order lately -- he's reached base safely in 18 of his last 19 games, slashing .313/.420/.537 with three homers, nine RBI, nine runs and a stellar 12:9 BB:K, but routinely hitting seventh or eighth hasn't done him any favors on the basepaths. Wednesday's steal was only his fifth of the year, and first since May 6.
Albies went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Monday's win over the Pirates. The 22-year-old ended a 32-game homer drought in the third inning then went yard again in the seventh, leading the charge in a five-HR, 13-run eruption for the Atlanta offense. Albies is now slashing .269/.336/.435 on the year with nine home runs, four steals, 28 RBI and 39 runs through 66 contests.
Albies went 3-for-4 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in Friday's win over the Marlins. The first half of 2019 has gone very differently for Albies than the beginning of last season. He hasn't homered in over a month, and his .268/.330/.408 slash line has traded some power for patience compared to his performance as a rookie. The 22-year-old still has plenty of time to put everything together, but for now he'll continue to hit mainly toward the bottom of the Atlanta lineup as he searches for some consistency.
