The Atlanta Braves Are Up (2-1) In The So Far Not Watched By Me, 2021 World Series

October 30, 2021

The Atlanta Braves scored 2 runs, held the Astros to 2 hits (none yielded by Ian Anderson through 5 innings before he was lifted) and won (2-0) in game 3 and took a 2 games to 1 World Series lead. I wolfed down over oriced but delicious Oreos with vanilla fudge and went to sleep, again watching none.

“El telefono” yielded Atlanta first, with it, the Braves broke a 5 game home World Series losing streak, all at the hands of once Braves player and manager, Joe Torre’s Yankees (add 2 more losses by the Braves at home to the Yankees in the ’58 World Series, when sorry Joe, brother Frank was a bit of a goat and the Braves have lost 7 straight home World Series tilts to the Yankees) and ended a 4 game Houston road World Series game(s) win skein.

Austin Riley, as I finally detail some of this, delivered another big post-season hit, this a 1rbi double, that “tuned” NLCS MVP Eddie Rosario in the bottom of the third.

Meanwhile Anderson for 5 innings and Minter and Jackson for the next 2 held the ‘Stros sans or just type, without a hit.

In inning 8, a Diaz hit dropped in front of the non diving Rosario (protecting vs the extra base hit is more important) and pennant clinching pitching hero Manzek got out of it.

In the “bottom,” Travis D’Arnund, who hit the first homer of #2, surely at nice betting odds, albeit in defeat, homered to center, for (2-0) insurance.

Wil Smith retired Michael Brantley, an excellent hitter, who happened to make the last out of the ’19 World Series as his Houston lost to “Wash” (by the way do you think even with hedges, not to mention furniture sales, ‘they’ are letting Mattress Mac win over 30 million dollars, which he would via his original “‘Stros to title” bet?!!) and one week earlier on a Friday night, caught the last out, as Houston clinched a third straight odd year pennant.

Speaking of Fridays, the Braves are now (4-0) vs the Astros in Friday post-season tilts, all 3 wins in eventual “bastardized”/division series wins, vs them in consecutive odd years,’97,’99 and ’01.
