It didn’t take long for the Braves to establish themselves on the World Series stage in Game 1.
In their first trip to the Fall Classic since 1999, the Braves scored five runs in the first three innings against the Astros, including the first Game 1 opening homer in World Series history, when Atlanta won 6-2. .
The Astros now only have one game left at home before the series moves to Atlanta for Games 3-5.
Houston’s home loss has been the latest in a recent trend for both the Astros and MLB teams in general. The Astros have lost five straight World Series games at home; MLB teams have not won a World Series game at their home stadium since the Dodgers beat the Red Sox in Los Angeles in Game 3 of the 2018 World Series (all 2020 World Series games were played in a neutral place). In their four World Series appearances, the Astros are 2-8 at Minute Maid Park.
Houston hopes Wednesday’s starter Jose Urquidy can stop those two streaks on Tuesday. Urquidy was solid during the regular season with a 3.62 ERA in 107 innings, but struggled in his only postseason appearance by allowing six runs, five earned, in 1.2 frames against the Red Sox in Game 3 of the Championship Series. the American League.

Max Fried will take the ball for Atlanta as the Braves hope to take a 2-0 lead before heading home to Truist Park. Fried had an outstanding regular-season campaign with a 3.04 ERA in 165.2 innings. He has continued to deliver in the playoffs: In 16.2 innings, three starts, he has a 3.78 ERA, a number largely inflated by a poor start against the Dodgers in which he allowed five earned runs to cross the plate in 4.2 innings of work. Before that, he had allowed just two earned runs in 12 innings.
