Who would have thought the Atlanta Braves would make it this far? Through the ups and downs of the season they persevered. They had some curveballs thrown their way on their journey to make it back to the World Series. Their first trip back since 1999. The last World Series Title they won was in 1995.
The series with the LA Dodgers was phenomenal. Hard-fought series by both teams. Atlanta Braves are World Series bound winning the series 4-2. With a final score of 4-2 in Game 6, they became the NLCS Champions. Eddie Rosario’s at bat in the bottom of the fourth inning with two on base, two outs, and a 1-2 count, he crushed a three-run homerun off of Walker Buelher to put the Braves up for good. Ian Anderson started the game, pitching four innings. He only allowed one hit. The pitching staff combined to seal the victory. Top of the 9th with two outs, Will Smith pitched to AJ Pollock, who hit the ball to shortstop Dansby Swanson, who then threw it to first baseman Freddie Freeman for the final out of the game.
It was a challenging journey for the Atlanta Braves to get back to the World Series this year. The season did not start as they had hoped. Lost some, won some. In July, they came up with a game plan for the trade deadline, and added in some extra talent in different positions. Injuries plagued them as well during the regular season. As a team, they kept moving forward no matter what, and here they are today in the World Series. They came from several games behind to make the postseason.
How The World Series Will Go
The World Series will be a sensational series. Both teams are very talented. The Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros are determined. It will come down to the last play of Game Seven. The Atlanta Braves will pull off the upset in Game Seven. Stats mean nothing in the World Series. These are brand new baseball games. It will come down to how strong the pitching staff is, and how deep they can go. Defense behind the pitchers have to stand strong. Offense has to score. Mental toughness will be key as well. Anything can happen in baseball. Baseball is 80% mental, 20% physical.
