Texas A&M University Lions Basketball
Houston (1-1) 7 – Atlanta 2
The Houston Astros led 5-1 after two innings, and the Atlanta Braves never really threatened after that. The closest they came to making the Astros sweat a little went in the top of the fifth when Freddie Freeman hit a two-out RBI single, and now the series tied one all. With their 7-2 win in Game 2 over the Braves on Wednesday night, the Astros became the first team to win a World Series game in its home ballpark since the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 3 against Boston in 2018. All played at a neutral site last year in Arlington because of COVID.
