World Series Game Six, 2021

Braves at Astros, 5:09 PM PDT, TV: Fox

LHP Max Fried (Postseason 1-2, 5.40 ERA) tries to nail the series victory down for the Braves. Standing in his way is RHP Luis Garcia (Postseason 1-2, 7.62 ERA) of the Astros.

From MLB:

Fried had a shaky outing in Game 2, giving up five runs in the game’s first two innings. But much of the damage against him came on ground-ball singles through the holes, and he settled in as the game evolved. Garcia allowed one run on three hits with four walks and six strikeouts in only 3 2/3 innings in Game 3 on Friday.

On this date in baseball history Chase Utley homered twice in Game Five of the 2009 World Series, staving off elimination by the Yankees for one more day. The Cubs beat the Indians 8-7 in ten innings in Game Seven of the 2016 World Series to win their first title in 108 years.

    • Well, if you count Baltimore – Washington as one metro area Peter Angelos of the Os and Dan Snyder of the NFL team would give these two a run for the title.

      • I know almost nothing about handegg (and couldn’t care less), but Johnson and Fisher are in a league of their own.

  1. Given the choice, I find myself less unhappy with the Braves winning than the Astros. Freeman is a tremendously likeable person. I have watched how pleasantly he speaks with runners at first base, particularly Mookie. Anyway, pitchers and catchers report in about 3 1/2 months.

  2. A lot of good things happening in this game starting with Fried surviving the play at first base which could have resulted in a big time injury. Go Braves!

  3. Hopefully the Deplorable Series ends tonight. The Trashtros will be insufferable if the Barves lose in seven (“We never needed to cheat!”).
