​​Atlanta Braves third baseman Johan Camargo was one of their hitting heroes last night, as he came through with the bases loaded by hitting a ​go-ahead two-run single in the seventh inning. It was groundhog day on Saturday, as Camargo gave Atlanta a 2-0 lead in the first inning with a two-run single off Jake Arrieta.

Arrieta walked the bases loaded before Camargo came to the dish, so you'd figure the youngster would be patient. Well, Camargo was down 0-2 in the count and was ready to swing the bat. He didn't do too much with the pitch and simply served it the other way.

The Braves offense didn't stop there, as they came back in the second inning and started a rally with two outs. After Ronald Acuña Jr. and Ender Inciarte reached base on a couple singles, ​Freddie Freeman did what he does best and lined a ball to center field to score two more.

Freeman has been white-hot lately, as he entered the game hitting .429/.452/.714 with two home runs and seven RBI over the last week. 


With a pedestrian month of August it looked like Freeman was out of the MVP race, but he's picked it up in September and is making a late surge for the hardware.
