2021 World Series Game 6 – Best plays and moments from Atlanta Braves vs. Houston Astros

The 2021 World Series has returned to Texas after the Houston Astros overcame a four-run deficit to the Atlanta Braves in Game 5 and held off elimination. The Braves enter Game 6 on Tuesday leading 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.

The Astros’ season may have been saved by a Martin Maldonado “Little League bunt” with the bases loaded in the fifth against Braves reliever A.J. Minter. Maldonado got up on the plate, much like a Little Leaguer would to try and throw the pitcher off. It worked, with Maldonado drawing a game-tying walk.

The Astros, thanks to Yuli Gurriel, Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa, added insurance runs in the eighth and ninth to keep their season going.

The Braves turn to Max Fried in Game 6 as Atlanta tries to close it out and win its first World Series title since 1995. Fried has lost his last two postseason starts and given up 11 earned runs in 9.2 innings over those two games. Luis Garcia, who started and lost Game 3 for Houston, will start on short rest.
