Houston Astros vs Atlanta Braves 10/29/2021
The Houston Astros bounced back after a Game 1 loss by taking Game 2 with the final score settling at 7-2. The big difference was during the bottom of the second where the Astros made 4 RBIs and pushed the score to 5-1. Since then, the Braves were not able to counter while the Astros cruised to the victory. It was a total team effort as six different players scored with Jose Altuve, Michael Brantley and Alex Bregman to name a few. Jose Urquidy pitched for five innings and had a total of six strikeouts. Four other pitchers saw action as well with Ryan Presley and Cristian Javier each having two strikeouts.
Players to watch: M. Brantley LF (GP 12, AB 54, R 3, H 19, 2B 4, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 9, TB 23, BB 0, SO 11, SB 1, AVG 0.352, OBP 0.352, SLG 0.426, OPS 0.778, WAR 0), J. Altuve 2B (GP 12, AB 50, R 17, H 10, 2B 3, 3B 0, HR 4, RBI 8, TB 25, BB 7, SO 12, SB 1, AVG 0.2, OBP 0.305, SLG 0.5, OPS 0.805, WAR 0).
The Atlanta Braves failed to make it a sweep of their home field in the first two games and they need to rechannel what they did in Game 1 to have a chance on the road. Freddie Freeman and Travis d’Arnaud were the only players who scored an RBI for the Braves. On the pitching end, Max Fried was on the mound for five innings and managed to strike out six players. This team needs more from Jorge Soler and Adam Duvali as both of them scored 2 RBIs during Game 1 and they had none in Game 2.
Players to watch: O. Albies 2B (GP 12, AB 50, R 9, H 14, 2B 3, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 2, TB 17, BB 3, SO 9, SB 3, AVG 0.28, OBP 0.321, SLG 0.34, OPS 0.661, WAR 0), A. Riley 3B (GP 12, AB 49, R 6, H 12, 2B 3, 3B 0, HR 2, RBI 6, TB 21, BB 3, SO 19, SB 0, AVG 0.245, OBP 0.288, SLG 0.429, OPS 0.717, WAR 0).
