What channel is Braves vs. Astros on today? Time, TV schedule to watch World Series Game 3

[ad_1]

Welcome to Atlanta, where the ballplayers play.

After the Braves and Astros split the first two games of the 2021 World Series, the Fall Classic shifts to Atlanta. The Braves were 15-10 in Atlanta to finish off the regular season at home over August and September. Luckily, for Atlanta fans, they have yet to lose a game at home so far in the postseason, going a perfect 5-0 at home so far this postseason.

The Braves turn to 23-year-old Ian Anderson to keep their Cinderfella run going in October: Anderson has allowed just three runs over 12 innings pitched over three starts this postseason. The Astros counter with 24-year-old Luis Garcia, who hasn’t had the same success this postseason as his counterpart, allowing 10 runs, all earned, in three starts of his own. 

It’s a big-time Game 3 with two young guns on the mound. Here’s what you need to know about tonight’s massive matchup in Hotlanta:
