Yesterday two Dutchies played on one team, the Braves to be exact. For the first time during this spring training, Ozhaino Albies was given a shot as second baseman, the position the Braves are preparing him for. The other one was Ray-Patrick Didder of course, who strated as center fielder.
Ozhaino Albies started the game at second base. For the first time this season, the Braves allowed him to play with the MLB squad. Right in the first inning, Albies recorded an out when the Yankees’ Chris Carter grounded into a 4-3 double play. Also in the first inning, Ozhaino led off the inning with a single to center field. Ozzie scored on a double to center field, hit by Johan Camargo.
In the second inning, the other Dutchie, Ray-Patrick Didder, got his first at bat. Unfortunately, he grounded out 6-3. One inning later, Ray-Patrick recorded his first out of the game when he caught a fly ball hit by Aaron Hicks.
In the bottom of the third, Ozhaino led off again, but this time he hit a 3-1 ground out.
At the start of the fifth inning, Ozhaino was replaced by Dylan Moore.
In the bottom of the fifth inning, Ray-Patrick laid down a sacrifice bunt to advance Balbino Fuenmayor to second base. It would be the last out that Ray-Patrick recorded as he was replaced by Ronald Acuna in the seventh inning.
