(KRQE/AP) – The Atlanta Braves defeated the Houston Astros 7-0 in Game 6 of the World Series championship on Tuesday night. It was the Braves’ first World Series championship win since 1995.

The win comes after Atlanta’s pitcher Charlie Morton fractured his right fibula in the third inning of Game 1. After a positive COVID-19 test, Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos wasn’t with the team when it clinched the Series.
