ATLANTA -- While the Braves struggle with production at first base, top
prospect Freddie Freeman is red-hot with Triple-A Gwinnett.
The left-handed hitter was 4-for-5 with two doubles and three RBIs in an
11-7 victory at Lehigh Valley on Saturday night, raising his average to

Freeman, who doesn't turn 21 until Sept. 12, was hitting .325 with 10
