G6 Atlanta (4-2) 7 – Houston 0
Tuesday night, the 26-year drought ended in Houston as the Atlanta Braves won the World Series championship by shutting out the Houston Astros 7-0 in Game 6. Jorge Soler hit a go-ahead three-on home run in the third off Luis Garcia to get things started. The Braves’ fourth title was about 9-1/2 months after Hall of Fame slugger Hank Arron died last Jan at 86. The loss left Houston’s Dusty Baker, 72, still waiting on his first title as a manager.
