Freddie Freeman continued his dominance over Mets pitching after going 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored in Thursday's 3-1 victory.
Freeman has mashed Mets pitching as Thursday's double was his 12 extra-base hit to go with 21 RBI over his last 19 games against their divisional foes. The Braves first baseman now has at least one hit in eight of his last nine games with five of them being of the multi-hit variety as he has raised his season average by almost 10 points over that span to .299 on the year.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
