At 62-45, the Atlanta Braves have a firm lead on the NL East, and last night they continued their momentum with a 11-3 win over the Colorado Rockies. 2013 All-Star first baseman Freddie Freeman has been a major factor for the Braves, with a .301 batting average and 13 home runs on the season. Two of those homers came in last night’s win, as Freeman went 2-4, also adding four RBIs and three runs total.
“It seems like we always get a couple of guys on, and we’re one swing away. There’s nine innings, so we’re not ever going to get down. We’ve done that this year,” Freeman said on the Braves’ ability to post runs. Thanks to Freeman’s performance, Atlanta is now 36-15 at home, which is the best record league-wide.
Freeman, a third-year first baseman, has been representing Under Armour’s baseball division in the UA Spine Metal.
