Highlight Freel

Ryan Freel did plenty to earn a spot on Sportscenter during Saturday night's 8-7 victory over Milwaukee.

He hit two home runs, including the eight-inning game-clincher, and made a couple of nice catches in the outfield. But, the most lasting image of Freel will likely be of him retrieving a baseball from within his uniform shirt after being hit by a pitch.

The soon-to-be baseball blooper occured when Freel was struck by a pitch and the ball somehow snuck inside his shirt sleeve before coming to rest at his waist. As Freel walked to first base, he looked like he was giving birth to rawhide.

"It was weird," Freel said. "All of sudden I felt this ball. I thought it was my dip can."
