Freddie Freeman’s on-base streak continues

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman has reached base in all 25 games to begin the season, the tied for the second-best streak in Atlanta-era franchise history.

Freeman’s streak is the longest in the National League. He’s one of two major leaguers to reach base in every game, joining the Yankees’ Luke Voit (26 games).

J.D. Drew reached base 27 consecutive games to open the 2004 season, setting the best mark in the Atlanta era. Freeman is currently tied with Dale Murphy’s start in 1987, with the chance to pass it Saturday night against Colorado.

The Braves’ franchise record is 37, set by Eddie Mathews in 1961. Freeman’s personal best streak is 46 games, set from Aug. 6 to Sept. 28, 2016.
