2021 World Series: Best moments from Game 3

The 2021 World Series is tied 1-1 after the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros traded blowout wins in Houston. The series shifts to Atlanta for Games 3, 4, and 5. Game 3 is Friday night. Luis Garcia gets the start for Houston and will face Atlanta’s Ian Anderson.

In Game 2, the Astros jumped out to a big lead and never looked back. Second baseman Jose Altuve hit his 22nd postseason home run, bringing him to No. 2 all-time. Astros starter Jose Urquidy struck out seven to get the win.

After two games, what do we know? Astros star Alex Bregman has gone hitless so far. The Braves’ pitching staff will need solid outings to replace the production of Charlie Morton, who was injured in Game 1.

What’s next? Anderson facing Astros shortstop Carlos Correa will be big in Game 3. Correa mashes changeups (1.066 OPS this season against the pitch) and Anderson throws a lot of them. That pitch could turn Game 3.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, in a tied World Series the winner of Game 3 has gone on to win the championship 69% of the time.

Here’s the best plays and moments from Game 3:

Super Rosario

Atlanta outfielder Eddie Rosario wants to channel his inner Mario in the remaining World Series games.

In a collaboration between Stadium Custom Kicks and Chandler Bats, Rosario will use this “Super Rosario” themed bat in homage to the iconic Nintendo character. While Rosario can use the bat only during batting practice due to MLB rules, the stick features a striking design with nods to the original 1983 game, including Goombas, pipes, bricks and Piranha Plants. The bat handle is adorned with the words “Super Rosario” in the game’s font, and the bat also features a cartoon of Rosario dressed as Mario and a Puerto Rican flag. Rosario also received “Super Rosario” custom-painted cleats, which he can wear in games.

Seeing red

The Braves will be busting out the red jersey Friday night and Atlanta legend/Superstation god Dale Murphy is here for it.

Atlanta record producer, executive and rapper is also in the spirit.

Fans with a porpoise

Braves by a million if these sea creatures have anything to say about it.
