The Atlanta Braves are World Series champions. The Braves bested the Houston Astros, 4-2, in the best-of-seven Fall Classic, winning Game 6 on Tuesday night in Houston. It's the first title for Atlanta since 1995.
The Astros (95-67) had a better regular season record than the Braves (88-74), so Houston has home-field advantage in the Fall Classic.

The two sides did not meet during the regular season. Indeed, they haven't played one another since 2017, when the Astros went 4-0 against the Braves and outscored them by 25 runs in the regular season. It's fair to write those results don't have any predictive value as it pertains to this series.
