Freddie Freeman was 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Padres.
Freeman registered his first multi-hit performance of the second half on Friday night, but is now 4-for-30 with two extra-base hits since returning from the All-Star break. Despite his recent struggles overall Freeman is having himself a solid season, slashing .283/.373/.480 with 14 home runs and 56 RBI, although it appears we will have to wait at least one more season before he reaches the 30 home run plateau.

Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
