In slick, wet conditions, Ozzie Albies tried to turn a double play but the baseball had other plans

The weather has wreaked some havoc on the Cubs' home portion of the schedule so far, and that continued on Saturday. The conditions at Wrigley Field for their 14-10 win over the Braves were less than ideal, at least in terms of how cold and wet/rainy the afternoon was.

That didn't stop the Braves' offense from putting up 10 runs by the fourth inning, however, with Ozzie Albies starting things off with a leadoff homer against Jose Quintana (and finishing 3-for-5 with 4 RBIs). 

Albies, though, did have some difficulty making a defensive play in the sixth inning. Trying to turn a double play on a Javy Baez grounder to second, Albies had a bit of an adventure ... and the baseball pretty much deserted him mid-play:

That's rough, but then again it's exceedingly hard to judge any ballplayer on their efforts out there when it's that wet and cold.
