Freddie Freeman tried stealing second base and on the throw to Addison Russell from Willson Contreras, Freeman kicked the ball on the fly to left field. That’s when Kyle Schwarber once again showed off his great arm.
You can make fun of Schwarber all you want about being clumsy in left, but his arm is no joke. He got to the ball and rifled a bullet to Contreras, who tagged out Freeman to end the first inning.
Just like we drew it up in Spring Training. pic.twitter.com/Y0X2XBgDDJ
