Tonight's Astros vs Braves live stream has Atlanta leading the World Series 3-1 and one win away from their first championship since 1995. Houston on the other hand will do all they can to prevent that from happening and force at least a game six at home. Braves look to close out the Astros in this MLB live stream.

The Braves trailed 2-0 going into the sixth inning of game four. Austin Riley changed that with an RBI single to pull Atlanta to within one. Then In the seventh, Dansby Swanson and Jorge Soler hit back-to-back solo home runs to give the Braves a 3-2 lead. For Soler, it was his second homer of the series.

The Astros looked like they were on their way to even this series at two games apiece last night as a Carlos Correa had an  RBI ground out in the first and a Jose Altuve solo homer in the fourth gave them a 2-0 lead. They even saw Zack Greinke’s best work of the postseason as he tossed four scoreless innings. Then the Braves were able to get on the board against Houston’s bullpen. Altuve’s home run marked his fifth of this postseason.

Framber Valdez will do his best to keep the Astros’ championship dreams going. This will be Valdez‘ fourth start of the postseason. He’s had his playoff struggles this year posting a 6.35 ERA over 17 innings of work.

The Braves named the rookie Tucker Davidson their game five starter. The 25-year-old lefty will be making his first postseason appearance and just his sixth big league start. He last pitched for the Braves on June 6th against the Red Sox, allowing five runs over 2.1 innings.
