Game 1: Despite losing star pitcher Charlie Morton to a right fibula fracture (ouch), last night’s Game 1 was all Atlanta Braves. They scored two runs in the first inning and never looked back, winning 6–2 to jump out to an early series lead over the Houston Astros.

  • And not only did Atlanta win the game, America won too. Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies stole a base, which means free tacos for everybody (yes, seriously). No better way to celebrate Taco Tuesday.

Game 2: First pitch is tonight at 8:09 p.m. ET. Atlanta’s star pitcher Max Fried (who uncharacteristically struggled in his last outing) will face Houston’s José Urquidy (who also underperformed the last time he pitched).
