Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is seeing the ball well these days. In particular, he’s been hitting the cover off it the past four games.
On Sunday as the Braves took on the Milwaukee Brewers, Freeman took pitcher Brandon Woodruff deep with a laser beam to center field. It was the fourth game in a row in which Freeman blasted a home run.
This rocket shot tied the game up at 2-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning, too — almost as impressive as what he did Saturday night.
Already on fire this season, Freeman’s past four days have raised his seasonal average up from .315 to .320. He now has 11 home runs with 29 RBI for Atlanta in 2019.
And for all you history buffs out there, he’s just five games away from breaking the all-time record for consecutive games with a home run. Ken Griffey Jr., Dale Long, and Don Mattingly all have done it eight games in a row.
