World Series score: Atlanta Braves win first title in 26 years after slugging past Houston Astros in Game 6
For the first time since 1995, the Atlanta Braves have been crowned World Series winners. Against the Houston Astros in Game 6 of the 2021 World Series on Tuesday, the Braves prevailed 7-0 (box score) to establish a commanding 4-2 lead in the series. An offensive barrage and a masterpiece from left-hander Max Fried propelled the Braves to the title in Houston’s Minute Maid Park, where they defeated the Astros. At the start of the game, two multi-run home runs helped Atlanta take a commanding lead over the Red Sox.
Soler’s home run traveled 446 feet with an exit velocity of 109.6 miles per hour, according to Statcast.
During Game 6, he blasted the loudest home run of the postseason: “Then, in the fifth inning, the Braves scored a pair of runs on a home run by Dansby Swanson.” Unlike Soler’s, Swanson’s had an exit velocity of 108.8 mph and carried 411 feet, according to Statcast.
A Freddie Freeman double later in the fifth inning (followed by a home run in the seventh inning) gave the Braves a 7-0 lead that they would not relinquish in the following innings.
Here are three additional things you should know about the Braves’ World Series triumph, including Fried’s spectacular catch.
1. Fried recovers from rocky start
The irony of Max Fried’s debut is that it might have easily gone horribly wrong at any point. Fried allowed the first two runners he faced to reach base: one on an infield single and the other on an error in which Fried made a series of errors while attempting to cover first base on a throw from Freddie Freeman. Fried was charged with two errors in the second inning. Fried failed to look to Freeman in time to receive the ball as he was in motion, and he also failed to locate the bag with his foot after he was on the ground.
- Although Fried had experienced his share of tragedy throughout the postseason run, he was still able to right the ship and win the game.
- Fried pitched a total of six scoreless innings, allowing only four hits and no walks throughout the course of the game.
- He was also extremely efficient, pitching three straight innings during the middle frames in which he only threw a single-digit amount of pitches for the first time this season.

Thanks for signing up!
For the most of the regular season, it appeared as though the Braves had little chance of making it to the World Series, let alone winning it. It was a busy month for the Atlanta Braves’ front office, as they added four outfielders (including Soler and Eddie Rosario) and many other role players to bolster their playoff hopes. However, at the time, those odds didn’t appear to be especially promising. When the season began, the Braves had a losing record, and they wouldn’t take over a share of first place in the National League East until the middle of August.
- The Dodgers won the series, setting up a repeat of the National League Championship Series from the previous year.
- They were then able to defeat the Astros and claim their first world series title since 1995 as a result.
- Outfielder Ronald Acua Jr.
- As an aside, outfielder Marcell Ozuna was placed on administrative leave during the season when he was arrested on suspicion of domestic assault during the regular season.
On so many occasions, the postseason’s allure lies in the fact that the seemingly impossible may and does occur – possibly even more frequently than during the regular season. This was demonstrated by the Braves throughout the previous month.
3. Astros have questions ahead
The Astros, who were eliminated from the World Series, will now embark on a critical offseason. Dusty Baker’s contract with the Astros is slated to expire at the end of the season, and it is uncertain if the team will retain his services moving forward. The same may be said for upcoming free agents like as shortstop Carlos Correa (who appears to be on his way out) and starting pitchers Justin Verlander and Zack Greinke, with Greinke standing out as a possible early retirement possibility. At the very least, the Astros’ roster might look drastically different come next season’s Opening Day.
Astros vs. Braves: 2021 World Series Game 2 updates, news as Houston wins 7-2 over Atlanta to even series
At 11:23 a.m. PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Astros win 7-2 over the Braves to take Game 2 and even series at one game each
Tim Britton says the Astros’ long nightmare of losing World Series games at home has come to an end. Mr. James Fegan: Wow, that was a tight and passionately played game. The second inning was the deciding inning in this game. The seven innings that followed—well, they did happen, to be sure. Levi Weaver: At long last, the Astros had a successful outing. The Athletic Department on October 27, 2021 at 11:17 a.m. PMEDT
Kyle Wright makes first MLB appearance since June 23
Kyle Wright makes his first appearance in the Major League Baseball since June 23, and what does he do? In the eighth inning, he retires all three Astros he confronts. On a total of 12 pitches. Tim Britton adds: He could be talented enough to be the bulk man for the Game 4 if things go well. Levi Weaver: I’d like to thank you for your service. According to the experts at baseball-reference.com, here’s a little amusing fact: “Kyle Wright had his second 1-2-3 inning in the majors this season, the first coming in the American League.
At 11:08 a.m.
Upcoming off day helps Astros’ case for using Pressly
Ryan Pressly pitching in the eighth inning with a five-run lead is surprising, but it appears to be a wise move. Pressly will come up in the ninth inning, and even if Baker wants to get two innings out of him now, there is an off day coming up that will allow for such a move without completely eliminating Pressly from the lineup in Game 3. James Fegan is a staff writer for the Chicago White Sox. At 10:42 a.m. PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Drew Smyly enters in the bottom of the seventh.immediately surrenders home run to Jose Altuve
Tim Britton (interviewer): Given Atlanta’s expected need for innings in Games 4 and 5, it’s interesting to see Drew Smyly go into the game here once again. Smyly’s new appearance appeared to put the Dodgers off their game for a few innings in the National League Championship Series, but I believe Jose Altuve was prepared for him. Drew Smyly throwing up bombs in the seventh inning of this game, as contrasted to Drew Smyly giving up bombs later in the series in a start, according to James Fegan.
Levi Weaver: I’d like to thank you for your service. I realize it’s a small sample size, but Jose Altuve has a.385/.385/.692 (1.077 OPS) line in 13 regular-season plate appearances, including a home run against Drew Smyly. The Athletic Department on October 27, 2021 at 10:40 a.m. PMEDT
Phil Maton – just the 16th player to wear No. 88 in MLB history – shuts the door on the Braves in the seventh
Levi Weaver: At the top of the seventh, Phil Maton slams the door shut. On the baseball field, seeing a88 is always entertaining. Historically, there have only been 16 in major league history, with names like Albert Belle, John Axford, and. whoa, we’re already getting to the Kyle Blanks section of this post. James Fegan (James Fegan): Maton was terrible throughout the regular season, and that was true both before and after the Astros acquired him via trade at the trade deadline. However, he has only allowed one solo home run in 8.1 playoff innings, which is a season high.
No, there isn’t a chance.
But he’s played a role in transforming the Astros bullpen from the impending weakness that had doomed them in the postseason to something else entirely.
Was Kyle Tucker safe at second?
Tim Britton (interviewer): Aside from the transfer rule, I can’t think of a single play that would benefit more from slow-motion replay dissections than it. Levi Weaver: I’d like to thank you for your service. I’m baffled as to how Kyle Tucker’s sprint speed is barely in the 57th percentile, given his size. Almost every time I’ve watched him play this year, he’s found a way to take use of his speed to make a play, steal a base, or advance to another base. My best guess is that he’s just an exceptionally talented baseball player with excellent intuition.
As much as it appeared that Ozzie Albies had caught that ball and lost it on the transfer, I believe it is going to be Houston’s night.
Maybe I’m missing something, but the call seems completely out of character with the way that play has been called for over a hundred years.

Dylan Lee makes his second career postseason appearance, replacing Max Fried for Braves
After making his Major League Baseball debut on the last weekend of the season, Dylan Lee enters the action in the sixth inning with runners on first and second and none out. This is his second playoff appearance, after a two-inning performance in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series in which he allowed three hits and one run (a Chris Taylor home run). David O’Brien is a senior writer with the Atlanta Braves. At 10:05 a.m. PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Despite four highest exit velo balls of the night, Braves still trail 5-2
A 109-mph double from Soler brought the Braves within one run in the sixth, but Pederson misfired on a flyball to shallow center and Duvall popped out foul to bring the game to a conclusion. The score is still 5-2 in favor of the visitors. The Braves had four of the night’s four highest exit-velocity balls.
Reminder: Exit velo doesn’t always tell a compelling tale, at least not in this particular game. Putting in the effort for several weeks at a time will finally bear fruit. David O’Brien is a senior writer with the Atlanta Braves. At 10:04 a.m. PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Two missed opportunities that could have made a difference for the Braves
If Soler had crushed the hanging slider that he received from Urquidy in the first inning, and Pederson had done the same to the hanging slider that he received from Javier in the sixth inning, this game would be knotted right now! Unfortunately for the Braves, homering on breaking pitches is a little more difficult than it first appears. James Fegan is a staff writer for the Chicago White Sox. At 9:50 a.m. PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Fried retires 10 consecutive batters
David O’Brien: Fried has retired 10 consecutive batters, including the final two batters of both the fourth and fifth innings, and has been perfect in the third through fifth innings. Fried has struck out five batters in that span, including the final two batters of both the fourth and fifth innings. His slider has been really successful, but his fastball has not been as effective. Levi Weaver: I’d like to thank you for your service. So, um, Tim was correct in predicting that Max Fried would improve as the game progressed.
The Athletic Department on October 27, 2021 at 9:42 a.m.
Astros lead Braves 5-2 halfway through the fifth
Jesse Freeman: Freeman stayed in the game and fouled off an Urquidy changeup just before line driving home an RBI single with a high fastball from Urquidy. Rosario was a little more competitive in his third matchup as well, despite the fact that the game ended in a ground out. See, there’s this thing called the third time through the order penalty, which I’ll explain further below. Regardless, Urquidy has already found money for the Astros after five innings of work with a three-run advantage.
Right-handed batters make up five of the following six Braves batters.
Joc Pederson’s hot streak has cooled down
As a pinch hitter in the first three postseason games, Joc Pederson went 3-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs. Since then, he has appeared in nine games and is 6-for-32 with one extra-base hit (home run), one walk, and ten strikeouts, including two strikeouts so far tonight. David O’Brien is a senior writer with the Atlanta Braves. 9:30 a.m. PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Second time through Astros lineup goes better for Fried
Fried did, after all, have a better experience the second time around! In the first game, the Astros went 5-for-8 against him, including a couple of seeing-eye singles, but they only managed one hit in nine at-bats the second time around. If Atlanta is unable to generate any offense off Urquidy, it won’t matter much, but at the very least the Braves have avoided having to resort to a longman to eat innings ahead of potential bullpen games later in the series. Tim Britton is a Mets staff writer.
PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Urquidy settles in during third and fourth innings
James Fegan: In eight plate appearances against Urquidy, he has one infield single and four strikeouts against Atlanta left-handed batters, but he is also getting some swings and misses in the zone on the low-90s riding fastball that he is throwing. That has set him up for success against hitters on both sides of the plate in the future. DAVID O’BRIEN: The Braves have been shut out in order in the third and fourth innings, with two strikeouts, two groundouts, a popup, and a fly by Soler in the third inning.
After a rough start to the season, Urquidy has obviously found his stride in the last few games. The Athletic Department on October 27, 2021 at 9:16 a.m. PMEDT
Goodbye to the third inning.
Everyone merely made weak outs on breaking balls, and nothing occurred as a result. James Fegan is a staff writer for the Chicago White Sox. At 8:55 a.m. PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Astros take 5-1 lead over Braves in the bottom of the 2nd
In a twist of fate, Fried was able to get his slider in on the hands of both Siri and Maldonado, resulting in inferior ground ball contact. However, the runners on base were already the result of Fried’s inability to command his fastball on the inner half up to his usual standards. Levi Weaver: I’d like to thank you for your service. “Be on the lookout, lads, because everyone is hitting the ball really hard tonight.” Baseball: “Take a look at this.” “Even if they put up a skewed statistic, it still counts,” I say.
- Dansby responded as though Rosario was about to throw home, allowing the second run to score on the play.
- The Astros are up 4-1.
- An inning in which four runs were scored.
- It would be fair to say that him hitting numerous ropes off Fried thus far tonight is a red sign in my book.
Urquidy struggling against righties so far in Game 2
I’m hesitant to simply list splits and call it a day after that. However, of the four left-handed pitchers the Braves threw at Urquidy in the first game, he struck out three of them (two on changeups), and he gave up a ludicrous infield single to Ozzie Albies. Right-handers, on the other side, are primarily hitting the ropes (Riley single, Duvall lineout, D’Arnaud home run, Swanson single, etc.). At the very least, Rosario lining into a double play in his second at-bat disrupts the pattern a little.
- Cristian Javier is expected to have some sort of part in this game, it appears.
- Javier has a fastball that is similar to Urquidy’s.
- James Fegan is a staff writer for the Chicago White Sox.
- PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Travis d’Arnaud ties it up 1-1 on blast to left field
D’Arnaud hit a three-run home run on a full-count 93-mph fastball that was pitched towards the top of the strike zone. If the Braves are able to get him going, watch out. Before now, he hadn’t accomplished anything in this postseason. David O’Brien is a senior writer with the Atlanta Braves. At 8:35 a.m. PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Expected batting averages on the balls hit by Astros hitters in the first
Expected batting averages for the balls hit by Astros batters in the bottom of the first inning are as follows: Altuve:.950Brantley:.460Bregman:.480Álvarez:.110 Fried was able to escape with only one run on one hit, but I have. reservations. Tim Britton adds the following: Fried’s first inning (as a whole, not just tonight’s) was by far and away Fried’s poorest period of the season in terms of opponent batting average (opponent OPS).
Instead of doing worse versus opposition lineups the second and third times around, he actually grew better the second and third times around. After that first inning, Atlanta is hoping and praying that this is the case. Levi Weaver is a Rangers staff writer. At 8:26 a.m. PMEDT on October 27, 2021
Digging into Max Fried’s pitch mix
When it comes to pitches, Fried is most known for his curveball. But in the National League Championship Series, he increased his use of his slider, which he has utilized more this year against lefties than in previous years. The reverse splits throughout his career and this season are similar to those in Urquidy’s, albeit they are not as dramatic. Levi Weaver: Fried, as indicated on the broadcast, like to throw his fastball in the inner third of the plate to right-handed hitters. Fried’s fastball is often thrown in the inner third of the plate to right-handed hitters.
Although a greater spin rate might make it more effective near the top of the zone, this is not the spin rate that Fried is experimenting with.
Although Bregman’s sacrifice fly was in the middle of nowhere, the slider was too center-cut to jam anyone and lingered up at or near the top of the infield.
Astros Dink and Dunk Their Way to a Win, Tying Series
TEXAS CITY — It had been nearly four years since the Houston Astros had tasted triumph in a World Series game at Minute Maid Park, following an almost unfathomable sequence of five consecutive losses at Minute Maid Park in the Fall Classic. Visitors to a sporting event are expected to blossom in their place of residence, whereas visiting teams are expected to fall under the clamorous inhospitality of local supporters who breathe heated hatred into their faces. However, the Astros’ most recent World Series victory came in Game 5 of the 2017 World Series, when they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers on their route to their lone championship.
- They had previously lost all four games of the 2019 series against the Nationals.
- 29, 2017.
- However, because the 2020 World Series was hosted at a neutral location in Arlington, Texas, it did not count.
- However, there has been a noticeable shift in the World Series in recent years.
- “Yeah, we lost four games in a row here in ’19,” says the coach.
- “However, we came back and won tonight.” ImageCredit.
- The game was sloppy and lopsided so rapidly that by the second inning, most of the tension and excitement had been extinguished.
As a result of Atlanta’s sloppy play and a little bit of luck, Houston was able to score four runs in the bottom of the second inning, when eight batters came to the plate and four of them scored on a slew of lightly hit but well-placed balls that frustrated Atlanta starter Max Fried.
He could see that the Astros were not launching balls to the distant reaches of the stadium as they had in the previous game.
Fried allowed five earned runs in five innings, but Snitker said he couldn’t describe Fried’s performance as one of struggle.
“It was just a weird inning,” says the pitcher.
Photograph by Doug Mills for The New York Times Fried retired the next 10 batters he faced before being relieved in the sixth inning after issuing walks to Yodan Alvarez and Carlos Correa and allowing a single to Carlos Correa to score.
When Altuve hit a bases-empty home run in the seventh, it extended the lead even further.
That put him in a tie with Bernie Williams of the Yankees for second place on the all-time list, behind Manny Ramirez’s 29 home runs for the Indians, Red Sox, and Dodgers.
In addition, he was victorious in Game 4 of the 2019 World Series in Washington.
“I’m extremely pleased with myself.” It is because of this that Altuve declared Game 2 a “must-win” contest.
Atlanta has won nine consecutive postseason games in its own stadium.
Photograph courtesy of Doug Mills/The New York Times Baker, on the other hand, was not inclined to panic, at least not with this team, even before Game 2 began.
Afterwards, Baker said on Tuesday, he received supportive text messages from friends, some of which were tinged with desperation, as if the Astros were facing an insurmountable deficit.
“It’s like, dude, this is a seven-game series,” Baker said of his response to those messages.
“It ain’t no one-game series. If it was a one-game series, I mean, you can save all of us sleepless nights, and just go home now.”But the Astros already were at home when he said it, and for the first time in six World Series tries, they actually won there.
List of World Series champions – Wikipedia
This article is about the victors of the World Series of Major League Baseball, which began in 1903 and has been going on ever since. See the list of pre-World Series baseball champions for information on prior league and inter-league victories. It took eight games for the Boston Americans (front row) to overcome the Pittsburgh Pirates (back row) in the inaugural World Series, which took place in 1903. It is the annual championship series of Major League Baseball (MLB), and it marks the conclusion of the Major League Baseball (MLB) postseason.
The current World Series, sometimes known as the “Fall Classic,” has been played every year since 1903 with the exception of two years: in 1904, when the NL championNew York Giants declined to play the AL championBoston Americans; and in 1994, when the series was canceled due to a players’ strike.
- Despite the fact that the vast majority of competitions have been played fully during the month of October, a minor number of Series have had games played during the months of September and November as well.
- Players, coaches, and others involved with the team are often presented with World Series rings to remember their triumph; however, other things such as pocket watches and medallions have been presented in the past.
- Through 2021, a total of 117 World Series will be contested, with the American League champion winning 66 and the National League champion winning 51.
- The Dodgers of the National League have the most losses with 14, while the Yankees of the American League have the most losses with 13.
- Louis Cardinals have won 11 titles, the most among National League clubs and the second-most all-time behind the New York Yankees, and have made a total of 19 postseason appearances, the third-highest total among National League clubs.
TheSeattle Marinersare the only current Major League Baseball franchise that has never participated in a World Series; theSan Diego Padres, Colorado Rockies, Texas Rangers, Tampa Bay Rays, and Milwaukee Brewershave all competed in the Series but have never won it; and theSan Francisco Giantshave competed in the Series but have never won it.
After winning the World Series in 1992 and 1993, the Toronto Blue Jays are the only organization from outside the United States to have appeared and won a World Series.
It is the only franchise to have represented both the National League (2005) and the American League (2017, 2019, 2021), with the Astros taking home the World Series in 2017. The Atlanta Braves are the reigning World Series winners for the year 2021.
