The last time the Atlanta Braves won the World Series was in 1995. Now, 26 years later, they are bringing the trophy home, again. With a losing record until the trade deadline, where they brought on four outfielders, something that seemed like a huge gamble, they turned everything around.
Going into the World Series, the Braves had the least number of wins. They took on the Astros, the team that had one of the best offenses in the league, and neutralized them. The Braves out pitched the Astros and shut them down for four of the six games. In tonight’s game, the Braves shutout the Astros with a 7 – 0 win, cementing them as World Champions.
No one thought the Braves could do it. They had the fewest wins in the regular season, and went on to win the whole thing. The Braves are the 2021 World Series Champions. Let the celebrations begin!
