The Milwaukee Brewers got a significant contribution from a fresh face on Saturday night.

Top outfield prospect Sal Freelick made his Major League debut and had a memorable night as the Brewers pulled off a comeback victory over the Atlanta Braves.

Freelick got his first major league hit, scoring the tying and winning runs, and made two spectacular catches, including one that robbed Marcell Ozuna of a home run.

The Brewers defeated the Braves in the finals, 4–3, and improved their record to 55–44 on the season.

After the game, Frehlich met with Ken Rosenthal and discussed his memorable Major League debut.

Before beginning his interview, Freelich received a Gatorade bath from his Brewers teammates.

The Brewers right fielder said he was definitely nervous going into Saturday’s game with the Braves and it was a natural feeling for him.

However, he said that things began to settle for him as soon as he had his first Major League hit and his first catcher.

The young outfielder made things easy with two brilliant catches.

Frelick said it was not too difficult for him to spot fly balls coming his way, even though it was the first time he had played at American Family Field.

The Brewers novice also discussed his last at-bat, in which he drove in the go-ahead run, saying he was just looking for a good pitch to hit.

Lastly, he praised the energy of the Brewers fans and remarked what an honor it was for him to play in front of them.

It appears that Corbin Burns is back to his typical ways
