They had to wait two days to come to Houston to clinch it, but the 26-year drought for the Atlanta Braves ended on Tuesday night.
Celebrate like it’s 1995, Atlanta. THE ATLANTA BRAVES ARE WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!
Jorge Soler put the Braves on the board first with this three-run bomb that landed somewhere in another zip code off Luis Garcia.
Dansby Swanson got Christian Javier again, as this time, it was a two-run bomb in the fifth that put the Braves up 5-0.
Freddie Freeman put on a show, as he had an RBI double to make it 6-0.
Then the 2020 NL MVP hit a home run off Ryne Stanek to put the Braves up 7-0.
As far as the Astros go, they were shut down by the Braves pitching staff. Max Fried pitched the game of his life, tossing six scoreless innings, allowing just four hits and struck out six.
Tyler Matzek and Will Smith took care of the rest to close out the rest of the game.
The championship for the Braves comes one year after the Braves blew a 3-1 lead to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS; the same team they beat in the 2021 NLCS to get to the World Series.
