Atlanta Braves threatens Dominican streak of consecutive World Series victories

The World Series goes exclusively to all of Central America through ESPN signals

Atlanta Braves is in an advantageous position entering the last matches of the 2021 World Series. Although game six and an eventual game seven would have to be played in Houston, the entire state of Georgia has room to navigate, a luxury that, so far, cannot be afforded Astros.

After an impressive offensive display in game five, the Astros They arrive as favorites to the sixth meeting, in which they will have the Venezuelan Luis Garcia as a starter, while the Braves will go out for the second consecutive time to be crowned champions for the first time since 1995, in the first World Series who have been playing since 1999.

Something particular about that World Series 1999 is that it was the last time the champion squad (New York Yankees), did not have a single Dominican registered on his roster for the “Fall Classic”. Despite the fact that, throughout the season, they debuted Alfonso Soriano and D’Angelo Jimenez, neither of them disputed a meeting as a member of the roster of World Series of the “Bronx bombers”.

Since then, during all that goes from XXI century (21 years) each team that has won the championship of Big leagues has had at least one Dominican player on his roster of World Series, a streak that today is threatened by the possibility that Braves take the World Series.

This streak is the longest in Dominican history within the Major Leagues (from 1956 to date), taking into account that the first born in the Caribbean country who played World Series, They were Felipe Alou, his brother, Matthew Alouas well as the immortal of Cooperstown, Juan Marichal (in 1962) and the first to win it was Julian Javier in 1964.

It is important to remember that, although there is a Dominican presence in the 2021 World Series, all four players are members of the Astros and have already acted in some way with the team. Framber Valdez has opened two games, Cristian Javier and Yimi Garcia as relievers, while Joseph Siri He has been playing as the team’s outfielder.

Additionally, it is also important to note that the Braves counted on the Dominican labor throughout the regular season and until the National League Championship Series, so those players would be considered as part of the champions. However, due to different circumstances, they were not entered on the roster of World Series (Huáscar Ynoa: right shoulder injury; Cristian Pache: entered the postseason roster replacing Jorge Soler by COVID-19 protocols).

Remember that you will be able to see all the games of the World Series in Central America exclusively on ESPN.
