Well, it’s about time that somebody can say something positive about the last place Atlanta Braves.
Despite a horrendous 19-46 record, Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman lined a single into right field to complete the cycle.

Freeman became the first Braves player to hit for the cycle since Mark Kotsay against the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 14, 2008. The Silver Slugger first baseman started out the night by doubling in the third inning, followed by a triple in the fourth, then smacking his 11th home run on the season, and it was all capped off by the overlooked single in the 11th.
The Braves were unable to score as the bases were loaded in the 11th, but thanks to a clutch hit by Chase d’Arnaud, the Braves were able to claim a 9-8 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
The hot swinging Freeman will be in action tomorrow night June 16th as the Braves look to take another game from the visiting Reds.
