More than 20 years have passed and the Atlanta Braves have not won an MLB championship, and they are one victory away from eliminating the Dodgers to reach the World Series, where they can break the title drought, just like made Cruz Azul in this 2021
The Atlanta Braves recovered very quickly from Tuesday’s 6-5 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series and won Game 4 of the Series to keep hope of following the example of Cruz Azul. to end its long drought of titles.
The Atlanta squad is going through the same situation that La Maquina experienced for a long time, which had to wait 23 years to become Liga MX champion again. The Braves were last crowned in the Major Leagues in 1995 and have not played in the World Series since 1999.
Atlanta’s last title came against the Cleveland Indians in a 4-2 series. The Braves featured figures like Tom Glavine, John Smoltz and the spectacular pitcher, Greg Maddux.
In 1999, the Braves returned to the World Series, but were “swept away” by the powerful New York Yankees roster led by Derek Jeter. Atlanta could not win a game and the New York team took the trophy in four games.
Cruz Azul, like Atlanta, went more than 20 years without winning the Mexican First Division title, but ended its drought last summer when it beat Santos in the Guard1anes Grand Final 2021. In this way, Braves will try to emulate what has been done by the cement group.
Game 5 between the Dodgers and Atlanta will be played tonight with the series in favor of the Braves 3-1. The game is scheduled at 7:08 p.m. in Mexico City and you can enjoy it on ESPN and Star Plus.
