Braves win World Series, first time champions since 1995

Atlanta Braves beat Houston Astros in Game 6 to win 2021 MLB World Series, first since 1995.






Finally, 
The Braves have won the World Series for the second time since the franchise moved from Milwaukee after 26 years.


The Atlanta Braves fought through injuries, a tough National League East & now they called the World Series champions.

They dropped their first four games, and soon injuries piled up. They lost their most dynamic player before the All-Star break. They were stuck below .500 in August..


For the first time since 1995, the Braves won the World Series with a Game 6 rout of the Houston Astros 7-0. The Braves won the series 4-2.

Atlanta, much like in Game 5, started off strong.



Jorge Soler came up in the third inning with two outs and Ozzie Albies and Eddie Rosario on base. He battled with Houston starting pitcher Luis Garcia in an eight-pitch at-bat that ended with a moon shot to left field and over the train tracks at Minute Maid Park.


Atlanta added to their leads in the fifth inning. Dansby Swanson homered to left field off one of the signs just above the seats. The two-run homer gave Atlanta a 5-0 lead. Freddie Freeman added one more run in that inning with a double to score Soler.


Fried allowed Jose Altuve to single and a defensive mishap allowed Michael Brantley to make it to first base.

The Brantley play became a source of controversy because it didn’t appear the outfielder stepped on first base and instead stepped on Fried’s ankle.

With two on and no outs, Fried came back and struck out Carlos Correa, got Yordan Alvarez to ground out and struck out Yuli Gurriel. Huge.



Atlanta Braves won MLB World Series, 2021 champions, best stats.




The Braves win their first World Series since 1995 and their second since the team moved from Milwaukee before the start of the 1966 season. 

The franchise’s history dates back to 1876 when they were the Boston Red Stockings.

 The team was also known as the Boston Beaneaters, Boston Braves, Boston Bees and Milwaukee Braves. 

The franchise now has a total of four World Series titles.
