Braves’ Freddie Freeman Leaves Game After Taking Pitch Off Left Wrist

Braves 1B Freddie Freeman reacts to being struck by Phillies’ Hoby Milner 90 mph pitch with the Braves holding a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman left Wednesday night’s 7-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies after being hit in the left wrist by a pitch.

Freeman was struck by a Hoby Milner 90 mph pitch with the Braves holding a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Before trainers could even reach the field, Freeman began slowly walking toward the Atlanta dugout, then he dropped his bat, removed his helmet and went down the tunnel.

Freeman missed roughly a month and a half last season after being hit by a pitch near the same spot and suffering a fracture.

Following Wednesday night’s win, manager Brian Snitker said Freeman was still being examined. READ MORE>
