Fall is officially in full force with chilly bonfire nights, Halloween is only a few days away, and the looming thought of what in the hell to get your family for Christmas is starting to creep in.
Oh yeah, and it’s time for the greatest event in all of baseball, the World Series.
The Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros kicked things off for game one last night at Minute Maid Park in Houston.
The Braves haven’t made it to the Fall Classic since ’99, and the Astros are trying to avenge a heartbreaking series loss in the ALCS last year (they’re also probably trying to prove they can win without cheating).
Charlie Morton got the start on the mound for the Braves last night, a former World Series champion with the Astros back in 2017.
Needless to say, the Braves had the perfect guy for the job for game one.
However, in the second inning, Morton suffered a fractured right fibula after being struck on the shin by a 102.4 mph Yuli Gurriel comeback ground ball.
