The Atlanta Braves Are The 2021 World Series Champions

With a 7-0 win against the Houston Astros, the Atlanta Braves took the World Series in a remarkable turnaround from a middling performance through midsummer to the championship in November.

Jorge Soler provided the biggest blow — a mammoth, three-run homer in the top of the third to open the scoring — while Dansby Swanson added a two-run shot in the fifth and Freddie Freeman homered in the seventh as the Braves pulled away.

Atlanta also got a terrific outing from Max Fried, who’d struggled in his previous two postseason appearances but delivered six shutout innings Tuesday.

The Braves take the best-of-seven series 4-2.

It is Atlanta’s first World Series title since 1995.
