World Series Notebook: Albies looks up to fellow 2B Altuve


AP Baseball Writer

HOUSTON (AP) — Ozzie Albies of the Atlanta Braves says Jose Altuve of the Astros is a player he’s watched as an example. Now they are opposing second basemen in the World Series, with the Braves up 1-0 after a 6-2 victory. Albies had two hits and Altuve went 0 for 5. The 5-foot-8 Albies says so many people told him he was too small. He’s actually a couple of inches taller than the former AL MVP. The 24-year-old Albies is a two-time All-Star who led the NL in hits two years ago. The 31-year-old Altuve is a seven-time All-Star who has led the AL in hits four times. His MVP season was 2017 when the Astros won the World Series.
