World Series 2021

World Series 2021: Dusty Baker did not panic after the Houston Astros’ Game 1 loss in the 117th World Series, and his club bounced back and beat the Atlanta Braves in Game 2, evening up the best-of-seven series before the venue shifted from Minute Maid to Truist Park, where the Fall Classic continues tonight (8:09 ET on FOX).

I think human nature is to overreact,” Baker said on Thursday, after the Astros’ 7-2 win on Wednesday night. “Personally. It’s sort of short-sighted and you just see the feeling that you have at the moment. Right now, what is it, best three out of five now? We went from best four out of seven, now it’s best three out of five. That’s how you’ve got to look at it, whether you lose three still, you’ve got to win four.

I’ll never forget like last year, we lost three, and damn near could have won four. I remember the Yankees in Boston, and they won four. So you’ve got to get to one at a time.”

Braves’ manager Brian Snitker echoed Baker’s take in his own workout day press conference on Thursday, after his club returned home to Atlanta.

Every game is such a separate entity,” Snitker explained. “I think it lasts a couple hours after a big win, but then it’s kind of turn the page. I think that’s really true. That momentum is as good as your next day starter pretty much.

I think you just — you don’t get tied up in that. When you play 162 games, if you get on those swings or whatever, you’ll drive yourself crazy, and you’ve just got to kind of take it a day at a time. I think you do this too. Yesterday didn’t go the way we wanted it, take a day off, and we’ve got a new day and a game to win tomorrow.

So I think our guys do a really good job of compartmentalizing that and living in the present.”

Baker too, asked about each game being a “separate entity” as Snitker described it, said that seems to be the case now more than ever.

World Series 2021

World Series 2021: The Houston starter struck out the first two batters of the night then Ozzie Albies reached first on a trickler down the third baseline.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms have made a friendly wager on the World Series between the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves, according to both mayors’ offices.

If the Astros lose the World Series, Houston’s mayor would wear a Braves jersey and if the Braves lose, Bottoms would wear an Astros jersey, according to the news release from the Houston mayor’s office.

If the Braves lose, Bottoms would also “send Mayor Turner some award-winning peach cobbler from the historic Paschal’s restaurant, a case of Mayor Bottoms’ favorite Cherry Coke Zero, beer from Best End Brewing Company, and a hammer from Home Depot in honor of Atlanta’s home run hero Hammering ‘Hank’ Aaron,” her office said in a news release.

The Atlanta Braves defeated the Houston Astros in Game 1 of the World Series, 6-2.

The Braves got on top of the Astros early, scoring a quick five runs off Houston starter Framber Valdez. The Astros’ left-hander was knocked out of the game in just the third inning after a disappointing outing.

Atlanta starter Charlie Morton looked good early but took a rocket comebacker off the bat of Yuli Gurriel to the shin in the second inning, breaking his fibula. Morton actually stayed in the game until the next inning and left after striking out Jose Altuve. The Braves announced that he will miss the rest of the series.

After Morton was forced to exit, the Braves bullpen went to work, keeping the Astros potent lineup mostly at bay for the rest of the game.

Game 2 is set for Wednesday night at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The first pitch is scheduled for 8:09 p.m. ET.

World Series Game 2

World Series Game 2: The big story of Game 1 of the World Series was Atlanta Braves pitcher Charlie Morton’s fractured fibula that knocked him out in the third inning and the rest of the contest against the Houston Astros. The top highlight of the game might be the Braves’ ace striking out Jose Altuve looking at a wicked 2-2 curveball, but completing his delivery in pain and leaving the game. The Braves won 6-2.

In the other dugout, the story was the quick exit of Astros starter Framber Valdez, lasting just two-plus innings and allowing five runs and eight hits — the majority of those rockets of 100-plus mph, including home runs to Jorge Soler and Adam Duvall into the Crawford Boxes in left field.

But the biggest big story was the performance of the Atlanta bullpen, allowing just two runs to the potent Astros lineup over the final 6.2 innings. A.J. Minter and Tyler Matzek, coming off their dominating performances in the NLCS, did each allow run, but they also combined to pitch four innings. These are two lefties that have proven they can get more than two or three outs and the takeaway seems clear: If the Astros are going to win this, they’re probably going to have to beat Minter or Matzek at some point. Minter did throw 43 pitches, so Brian Snitker would probably like to stay away from him in Game 2. Matzek threw 20 and he’s told Snitker he can pitch every day, so his rubber arm should be available for Wednesday. Luke Jackson, coming off a rough NLCS, got five big outs between the two lefties, which should be a massive boost to his confidence.

Another thing to watch is the baserunning. We saw Dansby Swanson tag up from third and score on a shallow fly ball to right field and we saw Yuli Gurriel stumble on a slide while failing to stretch a single into a double. Let’s see how team speed factors into the rest of this series. The Astros are a bad baserunning team, or at least a slow one. The Braves took the “extra” base 44% of the time in the regular season, fourth in the majors, while the Astros took it 36% of the time, which tied them with the Yankees and a couple of other teams for 25th through 28th best.

World Series 2021 Game 2 live stream TV channel watch online Game 2 is scheduled for Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET broadcast on FOX. It is also available to stream big moments Today the Astros try to bounce back from a 6 -2 drubbing last night.

Today the Astros try to bounce back from a 6 -2 drubbing last night, thanks mostly to the five runs allowed in the first three innings by Framber Valdez. The Astros need a starting pitcher to step up if they want to win this Series, and hopefully, Jose Urquidy can give the Astros a winning appearance as he did in the 2019 World Series.

World Series on Tuesday night, and that’s no easy thing to do. Now it’s Houston that has the tall task of overcoming a 1-0 deficit in this best-of-seven.

That might not sound like much, but only five of the 26 teams that have dropped Game 1 of the Fall Classic in the Wild Card era (dating to 1995) have gone on to win it. So Houston’s Game 2 starter, José Urquidy, has to give the Astros better than what they received from Framber Valdez in the opener.

World Series Live

World Series Live: How to watch Astros vs Braves Game 2 on Fox. The Fall Classic between Houston and Atlanta continues Wednesday, and you can stream it live, no cable required.

A strong second half of the regular season propelled the Atlanta Braves into the playoffs, and they continued their hot streak into October, knocking out the Milwaukee Brewers and defending champions the Los Angeles Dodgers to reach the franchise’s first World Series since 1999. The Houston Astros find themselves back in the World Series for the third time in the past five seasons, but their 2017 title is tainted by a giant asterisk after the franchise was found to have cheated during that season, and the next, by using a camera in center field to steal the opposing team’s signs.

Winning the World Series would end a long title drought for the Braves, while a championship for the Astros could help the team prove they can win when their batters don’t know which type of pitch is coming.

The Braves jumped on the Astros early in Game 1 and cruised to a 6-2 victory — but lost starter Charlie Morton to a fractured fibula. Morton took a comebacker off his leg and will miss the rest of the World Series, putting extra pressure on Atlanta’s pitchers against Houston’s explosive offense. First pitch for Game 2 is scheduled for Wednesday at 8:09 p.m. ET (5:09 p.m. PT) on Fox. Here’s how you can watch the World Series without cable.

The Houston Astros have home field advantage and will host the first two games of the World Series before it shifts to Atlanta for the next three games. Games 6 and 7, if needed, will be back in Houston.
