Relive Freddie Freeman’s solo home run against the Phillies

After Johan Camargo suffered a freaky pregame knee injury and did not return, Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman got SunTrust Park and Braves fans back into the game with a solo home run in the first inning.

With two outs, Freeman hit his 21st home run of the season to right field, putting the Braves up 1-0 over the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Braves went on to lose Tuesday's game, 5-2.

The Braves scored their only other run in the seventh off a single by Matt Adams which scored Nick Markakis. 

The Braves play the series finale against the Phillies on Wednesday night at 7:35 p.m. at SunTrust Park.
