The Braves and Astros took turns showing off the strength of their formations in Game 1 and 2. So it seemed appropriate that the script would flip in Game 3.
The Braves took their first game of the World Series 7-2 before losing to Houston 7-1 in Game Two. But on Friday, a brilliant game from Ian Anderson and a surprise shutdown effort kept Houston scoreless, while Atlanta only took a pair. From runs to win the match 3 2-0 in front of their home fans and take advantage of the series 2-1.
The series is now turning into Game 4, and if a potential start is any indication, this game could be a wild card.

With Charlie Morton injured, the Braves are expected to collect the Bullpen in Game 4, while the Astros hand the ball to veteran Zack Greinke.
Greinke entered the post-season after a stint on the injured list in late September that saw him return to the staff to finish the 2021 regular season in relief. I’ve thrown twice this postseason. In relief against the White Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS, where he gave a goalless run and allowed two strokes, and in a start against the Red Sox in Game 4 of the ALCS, where he gave up two rounds with one stroke and three walks in 1 1/3 innings.
