Jorge Soler, Freddie Freeman, and the Atlanta Braves secured their first World Series title since 1995 with a dominant 7-0 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night in Game 6.

Atlanta pitcher Max Fried pitched six impressive innings in a signature performance to bring it home.

Freeman hit an RBI double, and then he put the icing on top with a solo home run in the seventh inning to make it 7-0.

“We hit every pothole, every bump you could possibly hit this year,” Freeman said. “Injuries, every single kind of thing that could happen, that could go wrong went wrong, and we overcame every single one of those things.

“Boy, we’re in November right now and we’ve been doing this since February,” he continued. “We’ve had so many ups and downs this year. For us to be world champions, that is awesome to hear.”

Atlanta manager Brian Snitker dedicated the 2021 World Series title to the greatest Braves player and Hall of Famer, Hank Aaron, who passed away on January 22 at 86.

“Nobody ever wanted to let Hank down,” Snitker said. “That’s just the way it was, we didn’t want to let him down. He charged us with a responsibility to make these guys better and we weren’t going to let him down.”

Astros manager Dusty Baker is undoubtedly disappointed with the result but is ready to move on.

“Yeah, it’s tough, but you know something, you’ve got to keep on trucking, and that gives you even more incentive next year,” Baker said. “It’s tough to take now, but this too shall pass. I mean, it really hurts, but it’s over.”
