Will They/Won’t They on the Braves Winning Tonight

I initially predicted the World Series would end with the Braves winning in 7 games, but I definitely thought the series was going to be more back and forth than it has been. Nevertheless, Atlanta is up 3-2 and has a chance to close it out tonight in Houston. So, what will it take for them to win tonight?

Why the Atlanta Braves Will Win:

Max Fried is arguably the ace of this pitching staff, leading the starters with a 3.04 ERA including two complete-game shutouts in 165.2 innings this year. He should be the best they got, so he has the best chance of shutting down the Astros’ bats.

Not only that, but the Braves are gaining the DH with the move to Houston. That will allow them to have all their best bats in the lineup, despite Fried’s misleading .273 batting average this year. Much better to have Jorge Soler in the 2 spots than Fried in the 9th. Maximizes both your offense and defense in a crucial game.

Why the Atlanta Braves Won’t Win:

As I’ve said before, this Astros team is really good, and we saw it in game 5 when they scored 9 runs, fighting back after the Braves scored 4 in the first and 1 in the third to take the lead back. And it’s especially not a good sign when Martin Maldonado got 3 of those RBIs. Fried will definitely have his work cut out for him. And it didn’t go well the first time, as he gave up 5 runs in 5 innings in game 2.

On the pitching side, the Braves will be facing Luis Garcia, who’s been great at home this year and shut the door on the Red Sox in game 6 of the ALCS (despite falling apart in game 2).


Garcia is a tough nut to crack at home, so things may prove difficult for the Brave’s offense. Plus, I’d assume he doesn’t have much of a leash if things do start going south.


I’m definitely predicting a hard-fought battle, but I’m also worried about the Braves’ chances in this game specifically. I don’t think the factors working in favor of this Braves team can overcome those working against. I’m predicting the Braves will lose tonight, but I still have faith in them to win it all tomorrow.
