Astros win second World Series game against Braves – .


Behind an early blowout against Atlanta Braves starter Max Fried, the Houston Astros tied the World Series at 1-1 with a 7-2 win in Game 2 on Wednesday.
Houston entered the board with a sacrifice fly from Alex Bregman in the first, then opened the game with a four-run second inning, capped by a Michael Brantley RBI single. With their pitching staff already gassed thanks to an unexpected game in the relieving pen in Game 1, the Braves ended up riding Fried for five innings.

Jose Altuve finished the scoring in the seventh inning with a homerun from Drew Smyly, his 22nd career playoff homer. This ties him to Bernie Williams for second in MLB history, behind only Manny Ramirez (29).

On the pitching side, Astros starter Jose Urquidy recorded five solid innings, allowing six hits and two earned runs while removing seven sticks and walking none.

First World Series home win in 3 years

While a home win might not seem like a great achievement for the World Series favorites, it was odd at least to one point. No MLB team has won a World Series game in their home park since the Los Angeles Dodgers… in 2018. Max Muncy’s exit game, to be precise.

The 2020 World Series saw no real home games thanks to the pandemic, while the 2019 World Series produced one of baseball’s great oddities with seven straight road wins, which has worked well for the underdogs. of the Washington Nationals.

The Braves are hoping to see home wins themselves, as the series now returns to Atlanta for three games.
