Freddie Freeman routinely pounds the New York Mets, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down in this series. Freeman looks to continue his success against the Mets and help the surging Atlanta Braves complete a three-game sweep Sunday at Citi Field. Freeman has five hits in this series, connecting for an RBI double on one of his three in Saturday’s 7-5 victory as the Braves (12-5) won for the seventh time in eight tries.
