Sunday's showdown between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies could not have gone much better for the home team. That's because with Ronald Acuña Jr. on first base, Ozzie Albies stepped up to the plate and smashed a two-run homer.
What made things even better for Atlanta is that this Albies dinger came with him batting right-handed. It was only his second plate appearance of the year on the right side, and he left the yard. Simply amazing.
With one swing of the bat, Albies did what he does best and gave Atlanta the early lead. There are big expectations for the club this season, and the same can be said for Albies. So far, he really is delivering.
