Braves vs Astros World Series Preview
The Braves and Astros have slugged their way to the World Series and kick off their best-of-seven series on Tuesday.
Atlanta is back in the Fall Classic for the first time since 1999 and are looking for their first championship since 1995. The Braves were able to dispatch the Dodgers in the NLCS in six games, clinching their World Series berth. It was anything but a smooth ride for the Braves, who lost Ronald Acuna Jr. — arguably their best player — around the All-Star break.
The Braves are confident heading into a matchup with an experienced Astros squad.
“Everyone just looks at overall record. It’s just been how this team has played in the second half is what made us feel this confident about ourselves and what we’ve overcome. It’s just kind of the whole thing that put it all together to make us feel the way we feel,” Braves star Freddie Freeman said. “We have had like 40-foot potholes that we’ve hit, like humongous speed bumps, everything you could possibly see in a road we hit it, and we still somehow overcame all that. I think that’s what this team has is anything we got thrown at us, we overcame it.”
The Astros were able to cool off the Red Sox in the ALCS, besting Boston in six games. For Houston, the trip back to the World Series comes with some unwanted attention in light of their 2017 sign stealing situation, which no one has forgotten about.
“I wasn’t here with the team in 2017, but I’ve gotten booed just as equal as anybody else,” ALCS MVP Yordan Alvarez said. “So I think we all have the same mentality that we really want to win a World Series to demonstrate that we are just a great team.”
Carlos Correa is one of the holdovers from that squad but said he doesn’t find extra motivation in the criticism.
“We just want to really show the world that we’re the best team out there. In order for us to do that, we’ve got to get four more wins. I don’t think the outside noise motivates us at all,” Correa said.
