Kyle Freeland hadn’t rounded the bases since 2011, back when he was a senior in high school. He remembered the way on Sunday.

The rookie pitcher hit one of Colorado’s four solo homers off Bronson Arroyo, leading the Rockies to a 6-4 victory over the struggling Cincinnati Reds. Freeland pulled a 71 mph pitch over the wall in right field for his first major league homer.
