To illustrate how skillfully Jason Heyward has handled all manner of pitches lately, Braves teammate Freddie Freeman pointed not just to the two-run homer Heyward hit on a slider from Yankees left-hander Boone Logan in the eighth inning Tuesday, but a pitch he fouled off on an earlier at-bat. "He's fouling off pitches — I think he fouled off a ball on the [at-bat] where he struck out that seemed to be this far [about two feet] outside," Freeman said, shaking his head. "He's reaching everything. When he gets it in the strike zone, like he did with Logan, he's going to do damage with it no matter what the pitch is, no matter what side it's from."
