Albies bounces back from 0-4 start

In the first game of this Minor League season, Ozhaino Albies went 0 for 4 in a 3-1 loss vs the Pensacola Blue Wahoos.
But Ozhaino bounced back in a big way. In the next game he started with a lead off single in the first inning . In his next at bat, in the bottom of the third inning, Ozhaino singled to left field on a ground ball. Eventually in the sixth inning, Ozhaino led off again with a single and scored the opening run, all the way from third on a triple to center field by Matt Lipka. Lipka scored on a double hit by Dustin Peterson to reach the final score.
In his final at bat, Ozhaino led of once again but flied out to left field this time.

With this performance, his batting average rose from .000 to .375.

In Saturday’s game Ozhaino saw the ball very well again. He led off with a line drive single to left field. A soft ground ball single to right field hit by Matt Lipka made Ozzie advance to third. Eventually a sacrifice fly hit by Jordy Lara, drove him in for the opening run.
After a fly out in the second inning and a ground out in the fourth, Ozzie, like he is called in the US, singled to left field on a sharp grounder in the sixth inning. In the bottom of the ninth, Ozhaino lined out to center field and neither of the teams scored, so extra innings were needed with a 4-4 tie. Eventually the Blue Wahoos scored one more run in the top of the thirteenth inning. Even with Ozhaino in scoring position, after a single to center field and a sac bunt by Lipka, the Braves could not tie the game as Dustin Peterson popped out to shortstop Zach Vincej and Jordy Lara grounded out 5-3.

Thanks to this 3 for 7 performance, Ozzie’s batting average rose a bit to .400.This makes him the second best hitter of the team after catcher Steve Rodriguez, who is hitting .500 right now.
