Dansby Swanson, Jorge Soler and a win rally unlike any other in history – Jayson Stark’s Weird and Wild – The Athletic

COBB COUNTY, Ga. – As I was writing this, Truist Park finally stopped shaking. NS Atlanta Braves finally stopped hugging. And the 2021 World Series can now turn the tables and play Game 5 on Sunday night in the greater metro Atlanta.

But on Saturday, the world of the World Series changed. It teleports with the thunder of two earthquakes Braves running home will rummage through our memory banks for a long time. All right at our doorstep, the Curious and Wild chroniclers of the epic World Series games. So let’s do this!

1. Magic under the moonlight

We know in our hearts, in our souls, in our brains, there’s more to baseball than magic. But then comes games like Saturday night at Truist Park, when you start to wonder.

Honestly, the Atlanta Braves just won a World Series game they had no right to win, a World Series game, unlike any other team that has ever won. There are many explanations for why they won, for how they won, for how they looked at the end of this electrifying evening and saw a single math that matters:

Braves 3, Astros 2.

But one day, if they can figure out how to win another baseball game, they’ll look back on this night and remember it forever. On nights like these, it’s impossible to go home sailing through the sky when you least expect it. … And bolts of lightning at 100.8 mph fell onto the gloves of the men who didn’t know how they caught them. … And all the stars twinkling in the moonlight seemed to form a path to one of the most unlikely victories in World Series history.

So let’s take a look back at what made this Braves win so unique and historic.
