Les Braves are one World Series victory away

by archysport

The Atlanta Braves had the opportunity to come close to a top honors victory. They still had the difficult task of stopping the attack of the Astros for a second consecutive meeting.

Zack Greinke and Dylan Lee were the starting pitchers. For Lee, it was his first career start in MLB.

He also became the first pitcher in history to make his first start in a World Series game.

However, he will only be in the game for a few minutes, despite being taken out of the game after facing just four batters. He allowed two walks and one hit and he only gave one run in the end, which is good under the circumstances.

He was replaced by Kyle Wright, who gave the Braves 4.2 good innings.

It was still 1-0 Houston until José Altuve doubled his team’s lead with a solo homerun to center field.

He’s just six home runs away from Manny Ramirez and No. 1 in playoff history.

In the sixth inning, Austin Riley gave the Braves hope with a convenient single.

The goals were then met with Travis d’Arnaud at bat, but Phil Maton struck him out to end the set. 2-1 Astros.

Atlanta came back the next round. Dansby Swanson tied the game with their first home run since September 24.

The next hitter, Jorge Soler, did this, him:

3-2 Braves after seven full innings in Atlanta.

Worst of all: Yordan Alvarez was injured on the streak. Fortunately, he stayed in the meeting.

Early in the eighth inning, with no runners on the trails, Altuve hit the ball solid, but Rosario made the playoff catch.

And in the ninth round, Will Smith came to close the books.

Final mark: 3-2 Braves.

Atlanta leads the series 3-1 and will have the chance to take top honors tomorrow night in front of their fans.
