Freeman exits game with blurred vision
ATLANTA -- Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman left Monday's 3-1 loss to the Reds after the seventh inning with blurred vision in his right eye. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Freeman was to meet with the team's eye doctor after the game.

"He went through a couple of pairs of contacts and couldn't get it fixed," said Gonzalez, who didn't expect to hear the diagnosis of Freeman's condition until possibly Tuesday.

Gonzalez said Monday was the first time Freeman had dealt with the problem.

Freeman went 0-for-3 Monday and is hitting .277 with six home runs this season.

Eric Hinske, who entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the seventh, replaced Freeman.
