Ian Anderson, the Braves bullpen closed the Astros to regain the leadership of the World Series

ATLANTA – The Astros have the best offense in baseball. They reached base more frequently than any other club this season; they ranked last in strikeout rate and top in offensive WAR. There were only four games all season in which they had two hits or less. If you want to try to outmaneuver them rather than dominate them, good luck, as they alternate right-handed and left-handed for the top seven hitters in the lineup; an easy confrontation is not played here. Calming these hitters is taking down one of the most fearsome, versatile and balanced groups in baseball.
