The Atlanta Braves are currently on a roll.
This week, they managed to pull of an impressive three-game sweep over the young, upstart Miami Marlins.
They are 8-2 in their last 10 games and are on a three-game winning streak as they now hold the best record in the National League.
While the Braves were dominating the Marlins, star second baseman Ozzie Albies performed quite well at the plate.
Over the three games the Braves played at loanDepot Park, Albies was 9-for-14 with four doubles and two home runs.
On Twitter, MLB Network posted a few of his stats from the series in Miami.

Albies has dealt with some injury issues in recent years.
However, he appears to have overcome them and is back to producing at an All-Star level once more.
The 26-year-old is off to a hot start this season, hitting .288 in his first 125 at-bats with 36 hits, nine home runs, 26 RBI, an on-base percentage of .328, and an OPS of .904.
The Braves are also fortunate to have Albies producing at a high level.
During Thursday’s game, Ronald Acuna Jr. fouled a pitch off of his foot and was ultimately forced to exit.
But with Albies swinging a hot bat, the Braves are still in a good position as they sit atop the NL with a 22-10 record.
They have also built up a six-game lead in the NL East over the Marlins and the slumping New York Mets.
They’ll head home and start a three-game weekend series with the Baltimore Orioles.NEXT: Sean Murphy May Be A Surprise Award Candidate
