ATLANTA -- If Freddie Freeman started his surge earlier, he might have been a viable National League Most Valuable Player candidate.The hot-hitting Atlanta Braves first baseman leads the team into the final six games of the season, beginning Tuesday with the start of a three-game set against the Philadelphia Phillies at Turner Field.Freeman was named the NLs Player of the Week for the period ending Sunday. It was the third time he received the honor since June. He batted .500 (11-for-22) with three doubles, two home runs and five runs in helping the Braves go 5-1.Freddie Freeman is a terrific hitter, hes one of the best players in the whole game, Atlanta general manager John Coppolella said.Freeman is batting .305 with 32 home runs and 87 RBI to go along with 43 doubles, six triples and six stolen bases.He will try Tuesday to extend his 28-game hitting streak, only one shy of matching the longest in the majors this season. Freeman has reached base safely in 44 straight games.Freeman owns a .357 career average against the Phillies Tuesday starting pitcher, Jerad Eickhoff.Atlanta ace Julio Teheran will oppose Eickhoff in the opener of the three-game series, the penultimate set at Turner Field.Teheran (6-10, 3.10 ERA) will make his 29th start. He is coming off an impressive seven-inning stint against the New York Mets on Sept. 20 that saw him allow one run on five hits and a walk. In his four starts this September, Teheran is 2-1 with a 2.96 ERA.Teheran is 7-4 with a 2.31 ERA in 14 career starts against the Phillies. He is 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA in two starts against Philadelphia this season. He beat the Phillies on Sept. 4 when he threw six shutout innings and struck out seven.Eickhoff (11-14, 3.75 ERA) has been a workhorse for the Phillies. He is making his 31st start. In his last outing on Wednesday against the Chicago White Sox, Eickhoff allowed three runs -- all solo homers -- in seven innings of a win. In his four September starts, Eickhoff is 2-1 with a 2.81 ERA.Eickhoff has made five career starts against the Braves, going 2-1 with a 1.34 ERA. His last start against Atlanta came on July 31, and he received no decision after throwing five scoreless innings.The Phillies hope that Eickhoff can carry them deep in the game and save the bullpen, which has twice blown two saves in the same game in the past 10 days. Of particular concern is Jeanmar Gomez, who has wilted from overwork.The way I look at it is hes in a slump like hitters are, manager Pete Mackanin said. I told him for the next couple of chances to close, Im going to try somebody else. Just to give him a mental break.The Phillies might use Hector Neris or rookie Edubray Ramos in the closer role against the Braves.Philadelphia could be without rookie outfielder Tyler Goeddel. He was hit in the head by a pitch last week and continues to be monitored for a concussion. Manager Pete Mackanin said he wasnt sure if Goeddel would be available for the final six games. Ito Smith Super Bowl Jersey .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. Foyesade Oluokun Super Bowl Jersey . It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. http://www.falconssuperbowljerseys.com/ . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. Calvin Ridley Super Bowl Jersey . For the Wild it was their first win of the season and they now have a record of 1-1-2 while the Jets fall to 2-2. Jets start a six game home stand Friday with another divisional game, home to the Dallas Stars. Wholesale Falcons Super Bowl Jerseys . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. There was only going to be one result when New Zealand full-back Ben Smith dropped the ball onto his right foot in the final few minutes of the 2015 Rugby World Cup final. For looming up on the inside was one of the fastest men in world rugby: All Blacks replacement Beauden Barrett.Yeah unbelievable, for how that ball bounced up I just couldnt believe my luck, Barrett recalled to ESPN.And its just a memory, a feeling that will stick with me for a long time. Obviously it was on the back of a great team performance and it was pretty nice to finish that way.Having come on with 15 minute to play in the Twickenham decider, Barretts fresh legs iced the All Blacks third Webb Ellis crown after Sonny Bill Williams had made a similarly important impact from the bench just after half-time.But it wasnt always about speed for the son of Pungarehu cattle farmers, and brother to seven siblings, with his early running more about endurance that pure pace.I was never that quick as a kid, Barrett told ESPN. I was more into the long-distance stuff: running the hills.Mum would make me run home from school and so on; we had some pretty adventurous cross-country courses, which was good fun.Barrett and Smith were at it again recently during the All Blacks 3-0 sweep of Wales.An injury to fly-half Aaron Cruden gave Barrett 45 minutes at No. 10 in the second Test before he started the third Test in the same position.A return of three tries, a further assist, four clean breaks and a swathe of beaten defenders reflected his superb contribution in Wellington and Dunedin, and only added to the selection headache All Blacks coach Steve Hansen will have come the Rugby Championship.Look it was unfortunate for Aaron and the injury that he had, but it was an opportunity for me to just play footy and, you know, drive the All Black team -- and that was an opportunity that I really enjoyed, Barrett said.I felt quite composed doing it and I really did enjoy that game and a half [at No. 10].As for moving to fullback, as he did in the closing stages of New Zealands 46-6 triumph in Dunedin, Barrett said: [Smith] is a class player; getting pushed back to fullback, it opens my eyes up and theres a lot more time, spacee and freedom back there, and if its alongside Ben its pretty exciting.dddddddddddd But, yeah, I enjoy my time back there as well.[Acting as a replacement] certainly is part of development, playing footy is part of the development, and the time that I have had on the park [at Test level] has mostly been off the bench.But, yeah, Ive really enjoyed my opportunity starting and even if its going to full-back for the last part of the game Im really happy to do that. So theres different ways you can do it, but ultimately its just what works best for the team, and the coaches and selectors make those decisions.With the Test series put to one side, Barrett is now back at work with the Hurricanes as they seek a second straight appearance in the Super Rugby playoffs.Last weeks 37-27 over north island neighbours the Blues brought the Hurricanes within two points of the New Zealand conference lead while ensuring they continue to occupy a wildcard position.But they face a difficult road trip to Sydney for this weekends penultimate round before a final regular-season showdown with the Crusaders in Christchurch.A win over the Waratahs at Allianz Stadium on Saturday will be good enough to secure a semifinals spot; but having dropped their past two against NSW, and six of the last eight, it is anything but an easy assignment.Its going to be a huge challenge for us; both teams need to win, theres no hiding from that, Barrett told ESPN.Were aware of their strengths and theyve got plenty of X-factor, and power and strength in that forward pack as well. So its going to be a great game and were looking forward to it, were just going to have to take the opportunities that we get.We have to win that physical battle; theyve got some really big boys and you know [Hooper] is there, too.The breakdown; its going to be a huge, huge challenge for us to dominate that breakdown because both teams want to play footy and we know theyll do everything they can to slow us down and to give us poor quality ball, and well be doing the same. So whoever wins that battle will win the game.
