The Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros meet in Game 2 of the 2021 World Series at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. The game will be televised on FOX, with the first pitch scheduled for 8:09 p.m. ET. Jose Urquidy will be on the mound for the home team, while Max Fried will deal for the Braves.
The Braves took a 1-0 series lead with a 6-2 win in Game 1. Atlanta’s offense was clicking early, which is a great sign going forward. However, the Braves will be without Charlie Morton for the rest of the series after he suffered a broken leg. Atlanta’s rotation will be tested with Morton out, but the Braves ultimately got an important thing done; stealing homefield advantage in the series.
The Astros have now lost Game 1 of every World Series they’ve been a part of. Houston eventually went on to win the series in 2017 but lost in 2005 and 2019. Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa combined to go 0-12. That cannot happen if the Astros want to win this series.
