World Series 2021 -- Best moments, action and more from Game 2 between Braves and Astros

In Game 1 of the 2021 World Series, the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros saw a little bit of everything.

The game's biggest storyline happened in the bottom of the third when Atlanta's Charlie Morton threw 16 pitches, including a 96 mph fastball and 80 mph curveball, to strike out Jose Altuve, before exiting with a fractured fibula.

Both squads depended on their bullpens early as Morton and Framber Valdez were out of the game by the fourth inning, but the Braves' early offensive explosion allowed them to come out on top 6-2 in the Fall Classic opener.
