Albies and Davidson shining in Rome

Ozhaino Albies and Braxton Davidson are doing really well for the Rome Braves.

They are both only 18 years old, but Ozhaino Albies and Braxton Davidson are opening some eyes in the South Atlantic League.

Albies is hitting 322 on the season, tied for third-best in the SAL. He's got a .381 on base percentage, which is the ninth-best mark in the league. Albies has 25 RBI and 21 stolen bases, and he's tied for fifth in the league in steals.

But Albies has a 15-game hitting streak, and look at these numbers: a .443 average (27-61) with 7 walks and a .500 (34-68) on base percentage.

Since May 1, in 38 games, Albies is now hitting .346 (54-156) with 15 stolen bases and a .401 (71/177) on base percentage.

Davidson started the season 2-for-20 but he has hit .281 (45-160) since April 20. Since May 1, Davidson has hit .282 (35-124) with 27 walks and a .419 on base percentage.

Davidson is fourth in the Sally League in on base percentage with a mark of .399 and is third in walks with 39 in 55 games.

Again, both of these players are 18 years old.
