Astros vs. Braves Dwell Rating, Updates, Highlights from Recreation 1 of the 2021 World Sequence
It’s time for the World Series to officially begin.
The Astros will host the Braves in the first game of the Best of Seven series after each team has advanced in their respective leagues after six Championship Series wins.
While the Astros enter the World Series with an exhausted pitching team due to injury, they will hand over the ball to their most reliable starter on the hill in Framber Valdez. He ended the longest outing of the 2021 postseason when he allowed only one run to the Red Sox over eight innings with three hits, one walk, and five strikeouts.
The Braves will send Charlie Morton, who has dominated the postseason for the past few years, to begin Game 1 with 18 legal walks in 44.1 innings of work. His teams went 6-3 in these starts.
