The Atlanta Braves are one win away from their first World Series championship since 1995, heading into Sunday’s Game 5 with a 3-1 lead over the Houston Astros.

Atlanta won Games 3 and 4 at Truist Park on Friday and Saturday, making them 7-0 at home in the postseason. On Saturday, back-to-back home runs from Dansby Swanson and Jorge Soler in the seventh inning helped the Braves rally back and win 3-2 to take a commanding series lead.

The Astros are in the World Series for the third time in five years but only seven teams in history have come back from a 3-1 deficit – most recently the Chicago Cubs against Cleveland in 2016.
