Houston Astros vs Atlanta Braves 10/30/2021
The Houston Astros after having a strong Game 2 performance were shut down and laid a goose egg in Game 3 against the Atlanta Braves. The team only had two hits the entire game and these came from Alex Bregman and Aledmys Diaz. The pitchers did well in this game but were not able to match their opponent’s performance. Main pitcher Luis Garcia led the team with six strikeouts in almost four pitched innings and four other relief pitchers each had a strikeout. This team needs to wake up in their batting in order for the Astros not to take a dominating 3-1 lead.
Players to watch: M. Brantley RF (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.

The Atlanta Braves were just able to keep shut out the Houston Astros in Game 3 and their pitchers were a big factor. Ian Anderson was the main pitcher and he had four strikeouts in five innings while AJ Miner had only pitched an inning but was able to do two strikeouts. All the three other pitchers were able to keep the Astros scoreless when it was their turn on the mound. The two batters who scored in this game were Austin Riley and Travis D’Arnaud.
