Freddie Freeman made a phenomenal play at first base on a Bryce Harper grounder

Imagine being able to stop a Bryce Harper grounder. Crazy, right? Now imagine being able to stop a Harper grounder, make a phenomenal play and get the out. Yep -- that may also sound crazy, but it isn't anything Freddie Freeman can't handle.
In the top of the sixth during Saturday's Nationals-Braves game, Harper smacked a grounder to first. Not only did Freeman get a great read on it, but -- well, just watch what happened:

Perfect dismount -- and check out those reflexes!
Earlier in the game, Harper ripped a line drive past Freeman into right field. It looks like this was the perfect way for the Braves first baseman to redeem himself.
