- You don't see too many balls go up the upper part of that left center.

- Swing and a drive by Freeman deep to right field on the first patch. It's long gone out by the bridge. That is the first home run deGrom has given up all year at home and the first home run he's ever given up to a Braves hitter. 1-0 on a mammoth Freeman homer.

- A towering, moon shot to right field, and he got all of it.

- The pitch. Swing and a fly ball walloped straight away center. It's up high. It is gone.

Power versus power, and Acuña comes through. He's in the lead-off spot, and here we go. A solo homer, and Atlanta's in front.
