World Series-Smack! There’s a Homerun!

History last night, during Game 1 of the World Series between the Atlanta Braves: Jorge Soler became the first player to begin a World Series with a home run and the Atlanta Braves beat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Tuesday night’s opener despite the loss of pitcher Charlie Morton to a broken leg.

Boosted by a strong bullpen effort, a two-run homer by Adam Duvall, and a late sacrifice fly from Freddie Freeman, the Braves coasted in their first Series appearance since 1999. Game 2 is tonight at Minute Maid Park.
