What channel is Astros vs. Braves on today? Time, TV schedule to watch World Series Game 2

“Ground Chuck” has been grounded for the remainder of the 2021 World Series.

Charlie Morton legend grew up on Tuesday night, when the Braves right-hander suffered a fractured fibula while throwing a pitch, got three more strikeouts and hit 96 mph on the pistol before leaving the game.

The Braves rewarded Morton’s tenacity with an ambush against Astros pitchers, scoring five runs in the first three innings. They wouldn’t look back, winning a 6-2 victory over Houston in Game 1.

Now the Astros are hoping to save game two of the 2021 Fall Classic on Wednesday night, and they’ll look to right-hander José Urquidy for the start. Urquidy’s last playoff start was forgettable: In Game 3 of the ALCS, Urquidy allowed six runs (five earned) on five hits in a 1 2/3 innings thrown in loss.

On the flip side – literally – the Braves starter Max Fried is looking to right the ship himself. The Dodgers had the better of Fried and the Braves in Game 5 of the NLCS, as the southpaw allowed five runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings pitched, this after a dazzling performance in an excellent performance in the match 1.

Here’s what you need to know about Wednesday’s Game 2:
