Freeman went 2-for-3 with two walks, a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Phillies. The first baseman has reached base safely in 10 straight games, slashing a mammoth .447/.511/.868 over that stretch. Freeman was hitting below .250 as late as June 22 with an .804 OPS, but he's added more than 100 points to the latter mark in the weeks since and is now batting .287 on the year with 22 homers, six steals, 55 RBI and 67 runs through 95 games.
Freeman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Padres. With the score tied 1-1 in the sixth inning, Freeman drove a 95 mph Yu Darvish fastball on the outside corner over the fence in left field for the game's deciding run. The first baseman is back in MVP form, going yard five times in his last seven games while compiling a .407/.484/.741 slash line in July. The surge has boosted his OPS on the season to .903 with 22 homers and 55 RBI through 92 contests.
Freeman went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and an additional run Saturday in Atlanta's 9-0 win over Tampa Bay. Freeman's fifth-inning solo shot -- his 21st of the season -- put the finishing touches on Atlanta's resounding win. With the newly acquired Joc Pederson making his Atlanta debut Saturday as the team's leadoff hitter, Freeman moved down a spot to third in the lineup, which will likely be his home for the foreseeable future. The minor change shouldn't have too much of an effect on Freeman, who has posted a monstrous 1.207 OPS over his last 20 games.
Freeman went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer, a stolen base and two runs scored in Friday's 7-6 loss to the Rays. Freeman smoked a two-run homer off J.P. Feyereisen in the fifth to give Atlanta a 5-3 lead and added three singles in the game as well. He reached for the final time in the ninth and ended up stealing his fifth base of the year. The 31-year-old is swinging an extremely hot bat right now. He's hit safely in 16 of his last 18 games and is slashing .437/.518/.690 with four homers, 12 RBI, 13 runs scored and 11:14 BB:K over that span. After a very slow start to the year, Freeman has upped his slash line to .281/.387/.503 with 20 homers, 52 RBI, 60 runs scored and a 55:72 BB:K over 393 plate appearances.
Freeman went 1-for-3 with two walks and a solo home run in Friday's 5-0 win over the Marlins. The first baseman took Anthony Bass deep in the first inning, giving Charlie Morton and the Atlanta bullpen all the run support they would need. Freeman snapped a 12-game power drought with the blast but he was hardly unproductive during that stretch, slashing .362/.455/.468. On the season, he's batting .270 with 18 homers, four steals, 47 RBI and 56 runs through 86 games.
