Rowdy Tellez hit a two-run homer in the top of the fifth to give the Brewers a 4-2 lead, only to see the Braves come back again to tie up the game off lefty reliever Aaron Ashby.
Both bullpen then held the offenses in check until Freeman's decisive blast in the eighth inning.
Eric Lauer started for the Brewers giving up two runs and four hits over 3-2/3 innings. Hader (0-1) took the loss while Braves' closer Will Smith picked up his third save of the series to seal the victory for the Braves, striking out Christian Yelich to end the game.
