Only two players in Atlanta Braves history and three in franchise history have reached base in more consecutive games. Gary Sheffield, who set the franchise mark of 52 games in 2002, broke Dale Murphy's former record of 48 games, set in 1987.
Hank Aaron reached base in 43 straight games for the Milwaukee Braves in 1962.
Freeman also has a 25-game hitting streak, the longest by a Braves player since Dan Uggla's Atlanta-record 33-game streak in 2011.
Freeman's on-base streak, which began on Aug. 6, is the second longest in the Major Leagues this season. Jayson Werth of the Nationals reached base in 46 straight games from June to August.
