Braves' Freddie Freeman: Steals home in loss

Freeman went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in a 9-1 loss to St. Louis in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader. Freeman singled to lead off the fourth inning, then moved to third on an Ozzie Albies single. Albies eventually stole second, and that bought enough time for Freeman to steal home for Atlanta's lone run in the contest. The first baseman isn't known for his speed, but he's up to four stolen bases in five attempts this year. He's added a .247/.357/.467 slash line, 16 home runs, 40 RBI and 46 runs scored through 68 games.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Goes deep Wednesday

Freeman went 2-for-4 with a home run, two walks, an additional run and an additional RBI in Wednesday's loss to Boston. Freeman drove in a run with a third-inning infield single, and he put Atlanta ahead temporarily with a solo blast in the sixth frame. However, the reigning National League MVP struck out to end the game with the potential tying run on second base. Despite the disappointing ending, it was still a big game for the first baseman, who now has a modest six-game hit streak in which he's gone 10-for-26 with three homers, a double, seven RBI and five runs..

Freeman went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Marlins. The first baseman took Anthony Bass deep in the eighth inning to bring Atlanta within a run, but it was the only offense the team could manage.

Freeman went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday against the Phillies. Freeman provided one of the few offensive bright spots for Atlanta when he took Hector Neris deep in the ninth inning to tie the game. It was his 14th home run of the season, but only his second in his last 18 starts. Freeman is uncharacteristically hitting just .228 across 260 plate appearances on the campaign, but he is striking out at only a 17.7 percent. He's also chipped in 39 runs and 33 RBI.

Freeman contributed to the offense with an RBI single in the third inning. In the seventh, he walked and worked the back of a double-steal with Ronald Acuna. Freeman has slashed an unimpressive .233/.360/.455 across 242 plate appearances this year. He's done better in the counting stats with 13 home runs, 31 RBI, 37 runs scored and three stolen bases.

The slugging first baseman is riding an eight-game hitting streak with four long balls and nine RBI during that stretch. For the season, Freeman has 11 homers with an .821 OPS.

He took Alec Mills deep in the sixth inning for his seventh homer of the year, one of five long balls by Atlanta on the night.

Sean Kazmar story ‘absolutely incredible,’ says teammate Freddie Freeman

Count Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman as a member of the growing Sean Kazmar fan club. Kazmar, 36, was the story of baseball last weekend. After spending over 12 years in the minor leagues since his last MLB appearance, the Braves promoted Kazmar to the majors Saturday.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Ends brief power outage

Freeman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two walks, two runs and two RBI on Sunday in Atlanta's 13-4 win over the Cubs. For the fourth straight game, Freeman drew exactly two free passes, but his contributions in the power department had been missing over the past week until he took Kyle Hendricks deep in the first inning. Freeman's fifth home run of the season was one of four in the top of the first for Atlanta, the first time the club had achieved that in the opening frame since May 2003.
