Freddie Freeman tied his career-high of five RBIs in a game in just the second inning of the Atlanta Braves' 13-5 win over the New York Mets, and he did so on a mammoth three-run homer at Turner Field on Monday. Marvel at the video below.
The shot came off Daisuke Matsuzaka, who only lasted three innings and gave up six runs.
"I just went up there and put my foot down," Freeman said on braves.com. "When you go out and face guys you've never faced before, my approach is to be aggressive. It's kind of easier when there are guys on base. They have to come at you, because they don't want to walk you to load up the bases. He was aggressive, and I was able to capitalize on some mistakes."
Freeman had entered in a 2-for-21 slump, but the homer raised his average with two outs and runners in scoring position to .420.
