Thank fuck


Sleepy_One

I like it when astros score more runs than the braves.


Carpe_Musicam

Here’s what I like: I have no idea what happens from here. Braves could gas out. They could sweep it in front of the home crowd. This Series isn’t obvious.


KentuckyBrunch

GG all. Shaping up to be a great series.


spacecity9

Arod looks bloated in that suit lol


stratified16

A Rod looks bloated in every suit since Lopez left him


Hriscay

GG tonight Braves. Cya Friday.


santichrist

If you’re the Astros you feel great you finally started scoring like you’re capable and soundly beat Max Fried their best pitcher, if you’re the Braves you’re glad you won the game you were supposed to when Framber shit the bed


TimelyCandy

The sign of a good series.


xTexanPridex

GG Braves fans, lookin forward to Friday

BigBenson1994

There’s a lot of dodger fans who would rather a comet hit the earth the watch either team win. Like me lol


France2Germany0

Gg. 5 game series.


CosmoTheTaxCat

Surely the Braves will win at least one game. Have more faith.


France2Germany0

I might be getting wooshed here but since they both won a game it is effectively a five game series starting now, not that it will end up as a 5 game series total

See you Friday!

Defense SUCKED BALLS tonight


Feitan_SleeperOP

Cant wait to see the ump scorecard for this one. Might be the worst one this postseason for us. They really dont want us to win.


ohjesusHchrist

You're an angry little gnome. Go fuck yourself. Love LA


TallboyCommunion

You really think there is going to be a 5 point difference on the score card? Umps sucked but we lost this game fair and square.


blc0903

Do you really think the MLB prefers us over the Braves?


Euphorium

We fucked ourselves this game with piss poor fielding, don’t get it twisted.


PrecedentialAssassin

Why would they? Stealing signs is one thing, but the Karma Gods don't like marginalizing an entire race of people just for a sports thingy


OrganicTrust

Oh my god with the whining


BigBenson1994

One thing about braves fans, they love that victim complex.


TimelyCandy

I don’t want Atlanta to win.


jpapa98

We can all be happy that this wasn't a 4 hour game like game 1


iDreamOfMyDeath

Alright let’s go. Time to take all the money we made here and lose it on hockey! God I love America.


xF00Mx

Alright we got a series, looking forward to seeing all you chucklefucks Friday.


AstrosFanHou

See you ladies in Atlanta! 🤘⭐️🏆


lewisherber

Nicely done, 'stros. I think this series is going to 7.


Jack_Flanders

I hope so! Blowout series just ain't no fun at all. Except for fans of one team, I guess.


notsaying123

I'll take a 1-1 series. Enjoy the off-day and let's battle it out again

Dr_Snoop54

The people that were on that plane to Boston for one of the ALCS games, what happened to them? I know everyone survived but any word if they were able to make it to one of these games? I mean fuck


Faffenhoffer

I believe they were actually on their way back to Houston, but I haven't heard any bad news, which probably means nobody was seriously harmed.


Carpe_Musicam

They all got out with no serious injury, unbelievably.


DoctorManhattan24

Hopefully it was a home game. I can’t imagine any of those people wanting to get on another plane anytime soon.


ddot196

I think they wanted to remain low key after it all happened. They were on a private jet so I’m guessing it was probably some people that could afford tickets if they wanted to go.


TimelyCandy

Joc always eyeing the camera right in the lens.


PizzaPringles69

Gotta win 2 in the ATL

ThiccMaryMagdalene

[say what you will about the Astros but at least their namesake ballpark didn’t do this](https://imagesvc.meredithcorp.io/v3/mm/image?url=https%3A%2F%2Fstatic.onecms.io%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2Fsites%2F9%2F2021%2F10%2F26%2FTropicana-Toothpaste-FT-BLOG1021.jpg&q=85) I think it’s supposed to be toothpaste that doesn’t make OJ weird but the thought is still horrifying


kingsquirrel007

What does this even have to do with anything?


Euphorium

Minute Maid, Tropicana, idk juice.

fitzmama87

Good game Braves friends - see you in ATL!


Faffenhoffer

Alright, no weird 2019 away team always wins funny business.


PrecedentialAssassin

jppitre

Alexa, play Hoes Mad


capzi

People really thought the Astros were going to roll over because of last night's game. 😂


eaw0913

I don’t think anyone who’s actually watched either of these teams this year thought this.


adale24

GG Astros. Bullpen was impressive tonight.


2xIonEngine

Ah well. This is coming home, and it is gonna be lit at the battery this weekend! Braves in 5!


Salty-Fishman

LOL.


rollo2masi

Enjoyed shitposting with you folks again. See you on Friday.


Alphadestrious

Hell yeah!!! GG. Stay salty everyone , we got ourselves a series


tdoger

I haven’t really followed baseball since I was in little league and was a Giants fan. But now i’m moving to Houston, so i feel like I gotta root for the Astros, which was actually my 2nd team growing up since I got a Clemens autograph when he was on the Astros as a kid. But the whole cheating thing makes it kind of hard to root for them tbh.


mega_rad

More than half the roster wasn’t there during the cheating, so you can just root for those players if you want


db8r_boi

You can still root for all of the Astros that weren't on the team in 2017. Only the infield is the same. Root for Brantley and Alvarez and Tucker and the amazing bullpen!


hindesky

Astros, America's team


tdoger

I feel like no matter what I'm going to have to root for the Stros in some kind of way, being in Houston long term. And I definitely liked them as a kid after getting the autograph and meeting a lot of the Astros players when they came to San Fran. But Giants do have a weak spot in my heart for sure. I feel like I can't go back on that, I had Giants bobble heads, giants sign on my walls, foam fingers, players cards, jerseys, etc. all growing up, verses just one autograph of an Astros player and meeting a few of the players. The ties to the Giants just runs much deeper for me. But I'm excited to go to Astros games.


jgpudlum

Just remember that they all cheat, so really the Astros are double champs.


tdoger

Good point, I did always think it was goofy when people were outraged over claims that Brady and the patriots were cheating. In the most minor of ways.


MuffinCups22

Stay a Giants fan. Nothing better than connecting with your childhood roots.


tdoger

True, I'll probably keep it as Giants and rooting for the Astros on the side, maybe once the whole cheating thing is far behind. Giants definitely have a sweet spot in my heart. I just haven't followed baseball in years.

Graveman with the nail in the coffin.

SHOOOT IIIIIT!!!

GG, we were looking for one in Houston. Series feels like it’s going the distance.


conker1264

We did it!


gmwdim

That is a disgusting call by Joe Buck.


constable2

They all are.


Chriisterr

Man I hadn’t been active in the r baseball threads, just the r braves ones. I’m glad I decided to be nice and befriend strosbros. Baseball best sport in the world


highpost1388

Everybody stay safe. See y'all Friday. GG Braves bros.


chhurry

YOU KNOW WHAT RAULITO SAY


Faffenhoffer

SHOOT IT HOUSTON TEXAS GO ASTROS!!!!!


wildmoose45

SHOOT IT


Carpe_Musicam

Shoot it Houston Texas! Go Astroooooooos!


BlakeG3E

Onto Atlanta


TimelyCandy

Has Joc’s persona changed? He seems different than in 2017.


BlasterONassis

No he's always been pretty douchy. I couldn't stand him when he played against us but I'm glad we have him now. That said I think he's feeling himself a little too much at the moment.


TallboyCommunion

In a good or bad way? Just curious.


TimelyCandy

Neither. I just didn’t remember hearing about / seeing so much of his character in 2017. I only watch the Astros and remember him mostly for his play and not his persona. Idk


TallboyCommunion

Gotcha. I’m sure he was a little less confident back then, since he hadn’t put up his good postseason numbers. He annoyed me last year, but I like him now. He kinda seems like a guy that opposing fans would hate, so I was just curious.


meatball_rally

do you believe in miracles?


tajstah

Not for you. So sorry.


meatball_rally

ok good game!


browndude10

You mean like 28-3?


eaw0913

Houston Texans…. That is all.


meatball_rally

damn dude i ain't done shit to you


meatball_rally

me neither lmao


sacunn215

So did the Astro's pay off the umps to cheat this year?


jgpudlum

Go get some sleep buddy you’ve got to be up early for school.


sacunn215

LoL probably older than you. Also not even a braves fan. But the fact that the Astor's even exist as a team is disgusting.


jgpudlum

> also not even a Braves fan …and unflaired? You’d have to be in the wrong sub to any less relevant. You still throw controllers when the computer beats you, or when anybody beats you, don’t you?


LETSGOCAPS182

Cry.


GameSmashing13

GG HOUSTON


Scanlansam

Good game ATL


Awkward-Leopard-2683

Swanson's dad's name is Cooter. And that makes perfect sense! Lol


Squawkings

They should try and hit the ball where there's no defenders.


NormalMacdonald

GG braves this is gonna be a fun series


Stumblebee

WE WON A WORLD SERIES GAME AT HOME HOLY SHIT


J-TEE

With the roof open too


spacecitydude

Right!?! And with the roof open too.


legitocracy

I really hope to be able to say the same once in my life lmao


mitchymcgee

Just don't understand how a multibillion dollar operation puts so much power into the hands of old ass men who probably have vision loss to tell the difference between a ball and a strike thats moving 90+ miles an hour


wildmoose45

Robo umps > HuMaN eLeMeNt


OrganicTrust

The Astros were favored by 1.5 runs last night and lost pretty big. Neither of these games have come down to bad calls, and they seemed pretty evenly distributed. Calm down.


mitchymcgee

Bro we lose the game with or without the ump, but he certainly did not help us. The point stand either way, umpires have far too much power over the game. Also you are out of your mind if you think the calls have been evenly distributed


Im_black_

theyre unionized, thats it


JLand24

This right here. I would much rather see umpires in their 25-40’s vs 50+.


MN_Toilet

Gurriel is a trash human being. That is all.


mrbear120

Whatd Gurriel do? Bregman sure but Gurriel?


MN_Toilet

The racist shit with Yu. And never got punished for it properly.


mrbear120

Oh yeah, I am 100% honestly saying I forgot about that, Bregman just kinda looks like an ass. But yeah, Gurriel is certainly not an a class guy.


Im_black_

and a racist


MN_Toilet

That's what I was referring to. Imagine actually defending this guy after that, smh........


Sroemr

But he's our trash


MN_Toilet

Congrats. Celebrate by hitting a trash can, perhaps?


Sroemr

I just might! What do Twins fans celebrate? The MLB draft?


MN_Toilet

Our legit pieces of metal


Sroemr

They giving out participation trophies now?


MN_Toilet

What participation trophy is given out for a racist apologist?


Sroemr

All the players out there joking with each other. Yet this guy, who is a fan of a team that hasn't sniffed the World Series in 30 years, comes on a internet chat room and tries to pick fights with Astros fans. Can't get much more pathetic than that. Like I find most of the Astros haters pathetic anyway, especially when they're clearly more bothered by it than the actual players, but this is a notch or two even worse than those sad fucks.

Alphadestrious

Braves fans crying rn. I'm feeling super happy,


TallboyCommunion

We didn’t expect to be in the playoffs much less the World Series. Bummed we didn’t win today, but very happy to be 1-1 going into Atlanta. Definitely not crying. It’s gonna be a fun series.


CamelRacer

Crying all the way to game 3 tied 1-1.


HighKapp

Bro we’re just happy to be here


Euphorium

After Acuna getting hurt I didn’t think we’d even make the playoffs TBH


Hriscay

Bro, we’re just happy you’re here to. In my eyes, if we lose at least it’s to y’all and not the dodgers. This is gonna be a good series. Best of luck.


Texwolf96

This is my dream WS matchup y’all. No matter what happens this series, I hope we get 7 games!


MinimalPotential

Smoltz loves saying generic vague things.


Chriisterr

He reminds me of myself whenever I get asked to participate in class. Just kinda saying enough to be considered a contribution, but saying little enough I don’t get myself in trouble


lewisherber

Fun seeing a close series.


Sgarden91

There's still a looooooooootttta game left.


Im_black_

braves cant catch a break tonight basically every single hard hit ball is right at a fielder


chief_sitass

...there was some terrible fielding by the Braves as well


spacemanbaseball

Good game Braves See y’all Friday
