  • Astros vs. Braves live score, updates, highlights from Game 2 of the 2021 World Series

The Braves didn’t take long to establish themselves on the World Series stage in Game 1.

Making 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-ever leadoff home run in Game 1 in World Series history — as Atlanta went on to win 6-2.

The Astros now have just one game remaining at home before the series moves to Atlanta for Games 3 through 5.

The home loss for Houston has been the latest in a recent trend for both the Astros and for MLB teams in general. The Astros have lost five straight World Series games at home; MLB teams have not won a World Series game in their home ballpark 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 at a neutral site). In their four World Series appearances, the Astros have a 2-8 record 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 lone postseason appearance as he gave up six runs — five earned — in 1.2 frames against the Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALCS.

Max Fried will take the ball for Atlanta, as the Braves hope to take a commanding 2-0 advantage before going home to Truist Park. Fried delivered a standout 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 one bad outing against the Dodgers in which he allowed five earned runs to cross the plate in 4.2 innings of work. Prior to that, he had allowed just two earned runs over 12 innings.
