Freeman, 33, had two doubles through eight innings Sunday, connecting for his milestone hit off Astros right-hander Rafael Montero.
In two seasons with the Dodgers, Freeman has 296 hits after collecting 1,704 in 12 seasons with the Atlanta Braves
Freeman entered Sunday’s game batting .316 with a .941 OPS, 14 home runs, 25 doubles and 47 RBIs. In 14 major league seasons, he was batting .299 with an .897 OPS, 306 home runs and 1,088 RBIs.
A six-time All-Star, who won a World Series with the Braves in 2021, Freeman was the National League MVP in 2020.
