Baseball: Atlanta Braves win World Series against Houston Astros


26 long years …

The Atlanta Braves win the World Series for the fourth time in their history and are the new baseball champions.

The last title was won by the Braves in 1995. They went into the series against the Houston Astros as outsiders – to now triumph sensationally.

At 10:33 p.m. local time on Tuesday evening, the time had come in Houston. Atlanta won game 6 7-0 and the best-of-seven series won 4-2.

Atlanta actually wanted to celebrate in front of its own fans. And that’s what it looked like in game 5 on Sunday. But after a 4-0 lead in the first inning, the result was a bitter 5: 9. The series went back to Houston and most of the Braves fans had to watch Game 6 from afar.

Braves star Jorge Soler (29) received the award for most valuable player in the final series. He brought Atlanta to winning ways in game six with a home run in the third inning. When the Braves scored three more points in the fifth inning, the game was decided and the debacle was perfect for the Astros.

Strictly speaking, it is only the second championship for the ATLANTA Braves. The team was based in Milwaukee for the 1957 title, and in Boston in 1914. But the team has been playing in Atlanta since 1966 – and there was a real celebration there …
