Astros pitcher Justin Verlander made easy work of Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman to end the top of the first inning of the All-Star game. 

Verlander struck him out looking and the best part was Freeman was mic’d up for the whole thing.  It showed everyone a firsthand look at just how hard an at-bat against Verlander can be.  

So you still think you could hit Major League pitching?  Freddie Freeman is a professional hitter at the highest level and Verlander made him look like an amateur. 

Great pitching is hard to hit no matter how good of a hitter you are.  No wonder baseball is a game of failure.
