The Atlanta Braves clinched the World Series title on Tuesday, routing the hapless Houston Astros 7-0 on their own home turf in Game 6.

Jorge Soler, Freddie Freeman and the Braves won their first World Series championship in 26 years. Soler was a toddler and Freeman was six-years-old the last time the Braves won the championship in 1995.

"I've always said the team that has that little boy in them are teams that do good in the postseason," said Brian Snitker, Atlanta's manager. "And I really believe that. I think the team that just plays with emotion and enjoys what they're doing in the postseason is really dangerous."

Soler opened the barn door with a three-run homer in the third inning. And Freeman slammed it shut with a solo home run in the seventh inning for a final score of 7-0.

The Braves were heavily criticized for their offensive name, hatchet logo, and "the chop" gestures. The press also treated the team unkindly for not having any Black players.

Most of the dark-skinned players on the Braves are Hispanic. The closest to a Black man on the Braves team is 2nd baseman Ozhaino "Ozzie" Albies, 24, a native of Curacao.

The two-time All-Star became an Internet meme when he peered into the 2nd base dirt camera during Game 6.
