Representing the tying run in the bottom of the eighth against the red-hot Cleveland Indians on Wednesday, Freeman went down swinging to end the inning. And he took it out on his bat, big time.

Making things even worse, it was Freeman's third K of the night in an 0-for-4 performance that was part of a 3-0 loss.
