On Monday, Freeman was hitting .306 when play began with two home runs, eight doubles, and nineteen RBIs. With an on-base plus slugging percentage of.861 and an OPS+ of 142, he was 42% more productive than the typical MLB hitter. All Freeman has done since joining the Dodgers prior to the 2022 season is bat. During his first 2 years with the team, he batted .328/.408/.540 with an astounding 106 doubles and 50 home runs. With eight straight games of hitting, Freeman came in having gone 12 for 27.


Alex Kirillof

The Twins are scoring 4.59 runs on average and in the league, the offense is ranked 13th. As a team, they are batting just .238, which is 19th in the league. After Byron Buxton launched a game-tying home run to start the ninth inning, Alex Kirilloff hit a two-out, game-ending single to win against the Chicago White Sox. This season, the Twins have made a special effort to protect Kirilloff from left-handed pitchers. Kirilloff has been heating up lately, which led to his late-inning heroics. He hit a fastball into left field that was just enough.
