Freddie Freeman hit a pair of doubles in Friday's loss to the Nationals.
Freeman hit an RBI double in the third inning against Gio Gonzalez to push the Braves to a 2-0 advantage. That would be the high point of things for Atlanta. They lost the game 9-2, with Freeman the only Brave managing more than one hit (he finished the contest 2-for-4). The Braves might be treading in the dark waters of mediocrity at 14-15, but that's not his fault. This season, he's hitting .324/.380/.577 with five home runs, 18 RBI and 20 runs scored.

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI to help the Braves edge the Phillies on Wednesday.

Freeman broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning with an RBI double, then pushed the Braves' lead to 6-1 in the fifth inning with a two-run double. Phillies pitching has revitalized Freeman's bat as he logged seven hits in 12 at-bats in the series. He's now batting .250/.301/.544 with five home runs and 17 RBI on the season.
May 6 - 10:26 PM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with a walk, a two-run home run, and three runs scored as the Braves trampled the Phillies on Tuesday.

Freeman gave the Braves an early 2-0 lead with a two-run home run in the first inning off of Chad Billingsley. It was a cakewalk for the Braves from there. Freeman hadn't homered since April 18 but has otherwise hit well. He has five home runs, 14 RBI, and a .301/.363/.534 battling line.
May 5 - 9:57 PM

Freddie Freeman was ejected from Monday's game versus the Nationals.

Freeman tossed his helmet and might have said something to home plate umpire Bill Welke after striking out swinging to end the fifth inning. Welke didn't immediate eject Freeman, but it was Chris Johnson taking Freeman's spot at first base to start the sixth.
Apr 27 - 8:47 PM

Freddie Freeman hit a pair of doubles in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Freeman finished the contest 2-for-4 with the two doubles and a run scored. He's now hit five doubles on the season. In every area but average, Freeman's been producing in the early going, as he has four home runs, eight RBI and 11 runs scored to go with a .235/.307/.485 batting line. Given that he hit .288 last season and .319 in 2013, that average isn't likely to stay low for long.
Apr 26 - 4:41 PM

Freddie Freeman homered for the second consecutive game in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Freeman entered with terrific lifetime numbers against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey and delivered a two-run bomb off the veteran right-hander in the third inning. Freeman finished the day 2-for-4 and is now hitting .256/.319/.581 with four long balls and eight RBI on the season.
Apr 18 - 4:02 PM

Freddie Freeman's two-run homer in the eighth inning on Friday powered the Braves to an 8-7 victory over the visiting Blue Jays.

At the time, Freeman's blast off southpaw Brett Cecil increased the Braves advantage to 8-5, but after a late rally by the opposition it would prove to be the difference in the ballgame. Freeman finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .231/.286/.513 with three bombs and six RBI on the season.
Apr 17 - 10:39 PM

Freddie Freeman hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

It was Freeman's lone hit in four at-bats. The first baseman took Marlins starter Tom Koehler deep in the fourth inning to get the Braves on the board. Freeman will be counted on to provide the bulk of the offense for the Braves this year, and he's now got two homers and four RBI in eight games.
Apr 14 - 10:13 PM

Freddie Freeman hit a solo home run in Saturday's defeat of the Mets.

Freeman teed off against beleaguered Mets starter Dillon Gee in the first inning for his first homer of the season (and his only hit of the game). Freeman is off to a nice start to the 2015 campaign, with seven hits in his first 21 at-bats (that's .333 for the mathematicians out there). Freeman's going to have to carry the load for the Braves' offense this season and he's doing it well in the early going.
Apr 11 - 10:51 PM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored as the Braves throttled the Marlins 12-2 Tuesday.

After a relatively quiet opening night, Freeman broke out with a run-scoring double in the first inning before adding an RBI double in the seventh as well. The first baseman is the lone offensive star remaining in Atlanta, and he could see fewer and fewer hittable pitches as the year goes on. By no fault of his own it could be a down year, production-wise, for Freeman.
Apr 7 - 10:49 PM

Freddie Freeman homered, doubled and knocked in three runs versus the Nationals in Friday's loss.

We wonder just how many pitches Freeman will get to hit once the games start to count, what with the rest of the Braves lineup looking so inept. He did get some help today, as the Braves scored eight runs on 14 hits. Unfortunately, the club lost anyway.
Mar 6 - 5:44 PM

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in the Braves' season finale against the Phillies Sunday.

Freeman's RBI single in the first inning ended up being the game-winning run in the 2-1 victory. Freeman finishes the year batting .288/.386/.461 with 18 home runs and 78 RBI. It wasn't up to the level of his magnificent 2013 season, but Freeman did set a career high with 93 runs scored.

Freddie Freeman was ejected from Monday's game against the Nationals after spiking his bat following a strikeout.

Freeman threw his bat down hard enough that it split in half, which home plate umpire Tim Timmons didn't take kindly to. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez came to Freeman's defense and was also ejected.
Mon, Sep 15, 2014 09:06:00 PM

Freddie Freeman showed off his wheels in Friday's loss to the Rangers, swiping his third base of the season.

Freeman was on the move with a full count on Justin Upton, who wound up striking out. He singled and walked during the game, finishing the night 1-for-3 to raise his season slash to a solid .293/.388.474.
Fri, Sep 12, 2014 11:58:00 PM

Freddie Freeman smashed his 18th home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Marlins in Miami.

Freeman's solo shot came off opposing starter Jarred Cosart and got the Braves on the board in the seventh inning. The 24-year-old slugger is having another strong season in the middle of the Braves lineup, slashing .288/.387/.476 with 18 long balls and 70 RBI.
