Albies hits 2 HRs, drives in 4, as Braves top Blue Jays 9-5

ATLANTA (AP) — Ozzie Albies’ first career multihomer game was special.
Making his mother’s wish come true was even better.
Albies snapped Atlanta’s power drought with two homers, and the Braves beat the Toronto Blue Jays 9-5 on Wednesday to move back into a tie for the NL East lead.
Albies’ mother, Judari, arrived from their Curacao home on Tuesday night. It was a rare opportunity for the 21-year-old second baseman to play with his mother in the stands.
He made the most of the night by fulfilling his mother’s request to reach 20 homers — a level not expected of 5-foot-8, 165-pound middle infielders.
“It feels amazing. She told me before I left Curacao she wants 20 this year,” he said.
