The Mexican baseball player, José Urquidy, was selected by the squad of the Houston Astros as his starting pitcher for his second game against the Atlanta Braves for the 2021 Major League Baseball World Series (MLB).

After his defeat at home in the first game 6-2, the manager of the Texan team, Dusty Baker, appointed the Sinaloa native as his responsible pitcher to command the pitches from the mound for the first innings of match number 2, this being his second appearance in a World Series.


Throughout the regular season, Urquidy participated in 20 meetings with the Astros, all of them as a starter, winning eight of these games, but now in the series of the definition of the title he will try to rebuild his way through the Play-Offs 2021, since in his only game played in this postseason he took the defeat after his team fell 12-3 to the Boston Red Sox.

Also, the sinaloense will be making history, since he will be becoming the second Mexican to open in two different world series, matching what was done by the native of Reynosa, Tamaulipas, the former baseball player Jaime García. The previous time for Urquidy was with the Astros themselves, when in 2019 he started in Game 4 against the Washington Nationals.

This second game between Astros and Braves will take place in the Minute Maid Park from the city Houston, at 7:09 p.m. from the center of Mexico. At the moment, in the game of the best of 7 games, the “Braves”, carry the lead in the sequence with a 1-0 record.
