With 4 HRs in 4 games Ozzie Albies, Braves' infield sets sights on historic MLB milestone


No National League player has more home runs over the last week than Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies, and only Toronto's Marcus Semien has more. On top of that, no one in Major League Baseball is currently sitting on a four-game home run streak like Albies.

Lofty offensive numbers continue to mount as Braves infielders keep raking. Recently Atlanta became just the second team in MLB history to have each infielder reach 25 home runs in a season. With a few more longballs, the infield of Freddie Freeman, Albies, Dansby Swanson, and Austin Riley could reach an historic milestone.

Riley - 29
Freeman - 28
Albies - 27
Swanson - 26

If each infielder reaches 30, Atlanta will become the first major league infield to all land there, says Gabe Burns of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Braves have 24 games remaining in the 2021 season with games remaining against Washington (2), Miami (3), Colorado (3), San Francisco (3), Arizona (4), San Diego (3), Philadelphia (3), and the New York Mets (3).

Just for reference, and in case you want to head to Vegas and place a wager on the Braves infield all reaching 30 home runs, Riley has had the most longball success this season versus the Mets with seven home runs. Freeman has seven against the Phillies and five in games against the Marlins.
