Brave World Series win – Australian Jewish News

Author: | Posted in Australia No comments

PITCHER Max Fried led the Atlanta Braves to their first World Series win since 1995, giving the Braves a 4-game-2 victory over the Houston Astros with six knockouts in game 6 on November 3.

The 27-year-old left the Astros in four innings and overcame an ankle injury mid-match, hitting six without giving up a run.

The game featured what may have been the most Jewish game ever in any Major League Baseball game.

At the end of the second inning, Astros star third baseman Alex Bregman stepped onto the plate, dividing Fried’s second pitch into right field, which Braves outfielder Joc Pederson easily caught.

The fourth Jewish player in the series was Astros backup catcher Garrett Stubbs, who came into play in the ninth half of game 6, but didn’t hit the ball.

For Pederson, this was his second consecutive World Series win, having played for the 2020 champion Los Angeles Dodgers.

“I knew it was the last race of the year, so I knew I could empty the tank,” Fried said after the win.
