The Astros turn off the party in Atlanta and force the sixth game against the Braves

Houston is not dead. The Astros came from behind in the fifth inning to crush the Braves in Atlanta and avoid his coronation in a victory for Mexican José Urquidy. The ninth won 9-5 and after this result, the World Series will return to Minute Maid Park.

In a night that seemed unbeatable, the Braves started with great joy. Framber Valdez’s opening was marred by a sublime grand slam that Duvall gave to right field.

The answer was not long in coming from the Houston side. At zero hour and with a Davidson who was not fine, on the second roll, the ninth came within a two-run difference.

The joy began to fade in the park. Chavez’s relief failed to be effective and with the offensive on, the races came to make a new game just in the third chapter.

Fortunately for Atlanta, the Astros’ arms weren’t fine yet. Freeman returned the lead with a solo homerun over Valdez. The damage was hardly minimal and hope remained with a long way to go.

After Garcia’s work, it was Urquidy’s turn to work the entire fourth inning. The Mexican hardly experienced a shock, but with a great handling of the serpentine he stopped Atlanta in his tracks; enough merits to aspire to success.

The big moment for the Astros carried over to the fifth inning. Houston managed to eclipse Minter’s relief to capitalize with a full house. A walk to Maldonado spoiled Atlanta’s strategy and the ‘wheelie race’ fell. Then a Gonzalez single catapulted the comeback into a three-race rally.

With the spirits in the ground and no party, Dusty Baker’s bullpen hung up rings. Maldonado in a big plan became a nightmare and a couple more races gave the victory to Astros. The next game will be Tuesday in Houston.
