The Los Angeles Dodgers have gotten some very important contributions out of their star first baseman and slugger Freddie Freeman.
On Thursday, he achieved an important milestone, knocking in his 50th run of the season as the Dodgers routed the Colorado Rockies by a final score of 14-3.
Even more impressive is that in addition to his 50th RBI, Freeman has also stolen 10 bases and picked up 100 hits, and has also done it before the month of July.
With his 50th RBI, he became the first Dodgers player to have accomplished all of this before July since RBI became an official stat in 1920, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

This is certainly an impressive feat accomplished by Freeman.
The Dodgers slugger spent the first 12 seasons of his career with the Atlanta Braves.
He joined the Dodgers prior to last season.
Just two years into his Dodgers tenure, the veteran slugger has already accomplished some elite franchise history.
Freeman has won a Gold Glove, an MVP, three Silver Slugger Awards, has earned six All-Star selections, and a World Series ring in 2021.
But he’s off to a hot start this year with the Dodgers and is more than likely headed to Seattle for the All-Star Game at T-Mobile Park.
The 33-year-old had a big night against the Rockies on Thursday, picking up two hits and driving in three runs as the Dodgers pulled off an impressive blowout win.
In addition to his 50th RBI, he tacked on two more to bring his total up to 52.
He is also hitting .321 with 14 home runs on the season.NEXT: Clayton Kershaw Is Having A Vintage Month Of June
