Freddie Freeman beat a four-man outfield shift, but he wasn't able to outrun Yasiel Puig's right arm.

In the top of the third inning of the Reds' 4-2 victory over the Braves on Thursday night, the Reds moved second baseman Derek Dietrich to right, then shifted Puig to right-center. The Braves' first baseman laced a single off right-hander Luis Castillo into the gap between Dietrich and Puig, then raced toward second when Puig bobbled the ball.

However, Puig quickly recovered to throw out Freeman at second to end the inning.
