The first game of the MLB World series is happening today between the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves. The Braves had to defeat the Los Angles Dodgers which they did in 6 games winning 4-2. The Astros had to beat the Boston Red Sox, and they also won in 6 games winning 4-2. The Astros has won 7 more games on the season so they are the favorites going into the game.
The Astros won the World Series back in 2017 but there were lots of other teams and players accusing them of cheating during the games and knowing the catchers calls. So lots of people discredit them winning it all and beating the Dodgers that year. This year they hope to take another win but this time not have any scandals so they can prove that they deserve the title.
