Game Thread: World Series Game 2 ⚾ Braves (1) @ Astros (0) - 8:09 PM ET
By - BaseballBot
I like it when astros score more runs than the braves.
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.
GG all. Shaping up to be a great series.
Arod looks bloated in that suit lol
A Rod looks bloated in every suit since Lopez left him
GG tonight Braves. Cya Friday.
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
The sign of a good series.
GG Braves fans, lookin forward to Friday
HOW ARE MY FAVORITE HOES DOING?
Hate watchers in shambles
Can we all agree that Houston has suffered enough from the Texans?
Can I be a Bears fan?
Join me in Cardinals fandom. We have DHop and JJ
I have some bad news about JJ…
Sell the Texans to fund the Astros payroll, let's do it
Let’s do it
Game 1: Braves Domination
Game 2: Astros Domination
Game 3: ?
Game 3: The Undertaker with a folding chair!!
We never sleep.

GG Atlanta…*sweet dreams Dodgers fans*
There’s a lot of dodger fans who would rather a comet hit the earth the watch either team win. Like me lol
Gg. 5 game series.
Surely the Braves will win at least one game. Have more faith.
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
Joctober? Huh. Never heard of that. Didn't show up
Never heard of the guy
And you’ll never see joc-vember
Probably got jock itch rn
See ya fellers
Altuve just has a very uncircumcised swing
How many men of the night will it take to give Joc enough pearl necklaces to rest easy?
all of them
This is kinda weird. 8-)
“So you can see up out my window”
See you Friday!
Defense SUCKED BALLS tonight
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.
You're an angry little gnome. Go fuck yourself. Love LA
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.
Do you really think the MLB prefers us over the Braves?
We fucked ourselves this game with piss poor fielding, don’t get it twisted.
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
Oh my god with the whining
One thing about braves fans, they love that victim complex.
I don’t want Atlanta to win.
We can all be happy that this wasn't a 4 hour game like game 1
Alright let’s go. Time to take all the money we made here and lose it on hockey!
God I love America.
Alright we got a series, looking forward to seeing all you chucklefucks Friday.
See you ladies in Atlanta! 🤘⭐️🏆
Nicely done, 'stros. I think this series is going to 7.
I hope so!
Blowout series just ain't no fun at all. Except for fans of one team, I guess.
I'll take a 1-1 series. Enjoy the off-day and let's battle it out again
Good game brave’s, on to the next one
BLOWIN ON THAT INDO
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
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.
They all got out with no serious injury, unbelievably.
Hopefully it was a home game. I can’t imagine any of those people wanting to get on another plane anytime soon.
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.
Joc always eyeing the camera right in the lens.
Gotta win 2 in the ATL
The good guys win.
Braves in 5
Girl was too busy on her phone to celebrate the victory 🤦♂️
Probably tweeting: “OMG ASTROS WON” instead of enjoying the moment
Prolly a wanna be social media influencer 🤣
[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
What does this even have to do with anything?
Minute Maid, Tropicana, idk juice.
Good game Braves friends - see you in ATL!
Alright, no weird 2019 away team always wins funny business.
Easy breezy Lemon cheesy
Alexa, play Hoes Mad
People really thought the Astros were going to roll over because of last night's game. 😂
I don’t think anyone who’s actually watched either of these teams this year thought this.
GG Astros. Bullpen was impressive tonight.
Ah well. This is coming home, and it is gonna be lit at the battery this weekend! Braves in 5!
Enjoyed shitposting with you folks again. See you on Friday.
Hell yeah!!! GG. Stay salty everyone , we got ourselves a series
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.
More than half the roster wasn’t there during the cheating, so you can just root for those players if you want
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!
Astros, America's team
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.
Just remember that they all cheat, so really the Astros are double champs.
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.
Stay a Giants fan. Nothing better than connecting with your childhood roots.
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.
Can we please not speak of game 6
YOU LOVE TO SEE IT
Fuck you and see you ~~tomorrow~~ friday!
GG Braves. See ya'll on Friday
Graveman with the nail in the coffin.
Hope we pick him up as a FA
GG, we were looking for one in Houston. Series feels like it’s going the distance.
We did it!
That is a disgusting call by Joe Buck.
They all are.
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
Everybody stay safe. See y'all Friday. GG Braves bros.
YOU KNOW WHAT RAULITO SAY
SHOOT IT HOUSTON TEXAS
Shoot it Houston Texas! Go Astroooooooos!
Has Joc’s persona changed? He seems different than in 2017.
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.
In a good or bad way? Just curious.
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
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.
do you believe in miracles?
Not for you. So sorry.
ok good game!
You mean like 28-3?
Houston Texans…. That is all.
damn dude i ain't done shit to you
me neither lmao
So did the Astro's pay off the umps to cheat this year?
Go get some sleep buddy you’ve got to be up early for school.
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.
> 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?
Good game ATL
Swanson's dad's name is Cooter. And that makes perfect sense! Lol
They should try and hit the ball where there's no defenders.
GG braves this is gonna be a fun series
WE WON A WORLD SERIES GAME AT HOME HOLY SHIT
With the roof open too
Right!?! And with the roof open too.
I really hope to be able to say the same once in my life lmao
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
Robo umps > HuMaN eLeMeNt
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.
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
theyre unionized, thats it
This right here. I would much rather see umpires in their 25-40’s vs 50+.
Gurriel is a trash human being. That is all.
Whatd Gurriel do? Bregman sure but Gurriel?
The racist shit with Yu. And never got punished for it properly.
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.
and a racist
That's what I was referring to. Imagine actually defending this guy after that, smh........
But he's our trash
Congrats. Celebrate by hitting a trash can, perhaps?
I just might! What do Twins fans celebrate? The MLB draft?
Our legit pieces of metal
They giving out participation trophies now?
What participation trophy is given out for a racist apologist?
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.
Braves fans crying rn. I'm feeling super happy,
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.
Crying all the way to game 3 tied 1-1.
Bro we’re just happy to be here
After Acuna getting hurt I didn’t think we’d even make the playoffs TBH
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.
This is my dream WS matchup y’all. No matter what happens this series, I hope we get 7 games!
Smoltz loves saying generic vague things.
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
Fun seeing a close series.
There's still a looooooooootttta game left.
braves cant catch a break tonight basically every single hard hit ball is right at a fielder
...there was some terrible fielding by the Braves as well
Good game Braves
See y’all Friday
