The Astros were able to rally in game five to cut the Braves’ lead three to two. 

Atlanta is currently leading the series three to two after winning game one, game three, and game four. 

However, Houston forced a game six after a huge hitting performance by both teams. In the exciting game five, Adam Duvall hit a grand slam in the bottom of the first to take a four to zero lead.

In the top of the second, the Astros were able to score two runs to reduce the deficit. Then, in the top of the third, they scored two more runs to tie it up. 

However, when the Braves offense came up to bat, Freddie Freeman hit a home run to increase their lead by one. 

As the game went on, the Astros were not going to allow the series to end after five games. In the fifth inning, Houston was able to score two runs to lead seven to five. 

From then on, Houston was the only one scoring and ended up winning the game nine to five.  

The teams had a travel day on Monday, but they will return to Houston to play game six on Tuesday, November 2. If the Braves win, they will take the World Series title. 

However, if the Astros win, they will force a game seven.
