Houston Heads Back Home, Series 3-2
The Braves started game 5 hot, with Adam Duvall delivering a 2 out grand slam in the 1st inning. However, the Astros showed resilience getting themselves back into the game scoring 2 runs in the 2nd and 3rd innings respectively.
The levee broke for Atlanta in the 5th inning as they gave up 3 runs, and would not see a lead in the game again. The Astros knocked around Atlanta’s pitching virtually all night. The win keeps hope, and the series alive for Houston, as they head back home for game 6.
Game 6 is scheduled for Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park. First pitch is slated for 8:09 p.m. eastern time.
