Astros Beat Braves in World Series Game 2, 7-2

Just as the Braves piled on early in Game 1, the Astros jumped on Atlanta right from the get-go in Game 2. Jose Altuve scored following a leadoff double when Alex Bregman lifted a sacrifice fly; a huge four-run second inning, with RBIs coming on hits from Jose Siri, Martin Maldonado and Michael Brantley, put Houston out to a commanding 5-1 lead.

The Astros tacked on two more runs later in the game, and the Braves never could catch back up as Houston evened the series at one win each with a 7-2 victory on Wednesday.

While the Astro bats came out in force, it was also a strong start by Jose Urquidy that helped quiet an Atlanta offense that scored six in Game 1. Urquidy pitched five innings and allowed just two runs on six hits while striking out five. His counterpart, Max Fried, allowed six runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out six.
