The Atlanta Braves became MLB champions for the first time since 1995, beating the Houston Astros 4-2 in the World Series.
The Braves on top of the world! Atlanta won the MLB World Series on Tuesday, clinching its fourth victory in six games against the Houston Astros. After a 6-2 away win in Game 1, followed by a 7-2 loss in Game 2, still in Texas, the Georgia team won their first home game 2-0, then 3-2 on second, and after a 5-9 loss in her stadium on Sunday, she won 7-0 in Houston to wrap up the 2021 World Series ! The Braves, who played their first final since 1999, won the fourth league title in their history, but only the second since the franchise was based in Atlanta. They won the title in 1914 in Boston, then in 1957 in Milwaukee, and in 1995 in Atlanta, 29 years after their arrival in the city.

The men of Brian Snitker (66), present in the franchise since 1982 but in office since 2016, largely dominated this Match 6 Tuesday against the 2017 champions and vice-champions 2019, in the wake of the Cuban Jorge Soler, elected World Series MVP, and pitcher Max Fried, who has not seen any of his throws returned for six innings. “We have had all the possible problems, all the obstacles this year. Injuries and whatever. We overcame it all, ”said Freddie Freeman, the“ first goal ”of the Braves. Same speech from Snitker’s side: ” The guys never gave up. We lost a lot of guys over the summer, but there was always one to take over. This season will go down as one of the best for the Braves, who finished fifth in the National League in the regular season (88 wins – 73 losses), before eliminating Milwaukee (3-1) and the Los Angeles Dodgers, defending champions (4-2) in plays-off. For the Astros, it is therefore a second defeat in the final in three years, but the Texas franchise is already thinking about the rest: “The defeat is hard to swallow but you know what, you have to get up, said the manager Dusty Baker (72). It gives even more motivation for next year. They now have five months to work, as the next regular season kicks off on March 31.
