Freddie Freeman is making a very strong case for NL Rookie of the Year.

The 21 year-old standout reached base three times and ended the game with an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Nationals 9-8.

The Braves were fortunate to be in the game after falling behind 6-2 in the fourth. All-Star Jair Jurrjens had his worst outing of the season, but was taken off the hook when Brian McCann hit a three-run game-tying homer in the bottom half of the fifth.

Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect top of the ninth to pick up the win and extend his career-high scoreless inning streak to 15.

The Braves now travel west to Denver for a four-game series at Coors Field.
