Although they had the worst record of any team in the postseason this year, the Braves produced exceptional performances en route to the World Series.

Although the Astros took that away from them by winning Game 5, the Braves ensured Game 7 wouldn’t be necessary with a fine performance yesterday. With excellent hitting and pitching, they clinched their fourth World Series title to send their fans into euphoria.
