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.

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.
