Baseball, World Series Mlb: Atlanta beats Houston and goes 3-1

by archysport

The consecutive home runs of Swanson and Soler in the 7th inning sign the 3-2 of the Braves, now ahead 3-1. Tonight (1.15 Italian time) the match that could close the series

Now only the last step is missing, which is always the most difficult. The back-to-back home runs of Dansby Swanson and Jorge Soler in the 7th inning gave the Braves a 3-2 win over the Astros in Game 4 of the World Series, which now sees Atlanta at 3-1. Already tonight (1.15 Italian time) Brian Snitker’s team could celebrate their first title at home since 1995. Houston had immediately moved on thanks to the point beaten at home by Carlos Correa in the first inning, which was followed by yet another home run by Josè Altuve at 4th. Austin Riley’s hit in 6th place had shortened the distances, before the two consecutive home runs (on pitcher Cristian Javier) that determined the final 3-2.


Once again dominant the bullpen of the Braves. Open game-4 with Dylan Lee, used only for 4 batters, it was then Kyle Wright to hold off the attack of the Texans for 4.2 innings. Following, Chris Martin, Tyler Matzek, Luke Jackson and Will Smith muzzled the powerful attack of the Astros, conceding only two hits in the last 4 rounds. The starter of the guests Zack Greinke had done the same in the first 4 but this time the findings of Dusty Baker betrayed.

Swanson and Soler’s back to back in the 7th inning was only the third in the last 3 rounds of a World Series game after those of Pedro Guerrero and Steve Yeager for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1981 and Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig for the New York Yankees in 1928. Tonight on the mountain, Framber Valdez for Houston, while Atlanta has not yet announced who will be the starter in the race that could give him the title.
