The Atlanta Braves have the World Series in the major league Baseball won against the Houston Astros. With a 7: 0 on Tuesday evening in Houston, they decided the “best of seven” final series with 4: 2 and celebrated the fourth title in their history. They last won the World Series in 1995.
Jorge Soler, who was honored as the most valuable player in the final series, brought the Braves, who had started as underdogs in the World Series, 3-0 lead with a home run in the third inning. Three more points in the fifth inning were the preliminary decision in the encounter, which turned into an unexpected debacle for the hosts.
On Sunday the Atlanta Braves had an emotional roller coaster when they could have done everything perfectly in their last home game and celebrated in front of their own fans. It also got off to a good start with a 4-0 lead in the first inning. But the home team slipped out of their hands and ended up with a bitter 5: 9.
The advantage of a home game brought the Astros just as little as they did at the start of the World Series, when the Braves caused a surprise with a 6-2 win in Houston.
The team from Texas now has to wait for the second title within five years despite their third World Series participation. The first was in 2017 – and it is very controversial. Despite a proven fraud – the Astros spied on the signals of the opponents and thus also gained an advantage in the final series against the Los Angeles Dodgers – they were allowed to keep the championship. With opposing fans, however, the Astros have since been extremely unpopular and trash cans are an often used sign of rejection. Trash can because the Astros transmitted the information about the espionage by knocking on a trash can. Most of the fans of the other teams were in favor of the Braves in the World Series.
