ATLANTA — The celebrations lasted late into the night in Atlanta as the Braves sealed a spot in the World Series for the first time in 22 years.
But for the actual players on the team, they won't last much longer. Game 1 looms in just a couple of days.
The short period where the Braves will be able to savor their achievement will be followed by a travel day for the team to Houston, where the Astros will host Games 1-2 and, if necessary, 6-7 of the 2021 World Series.
That will take place either today or Monday, though it's likelier the team will travel today so they can get in a full workout in Houston before the next game.
That will take place on Tuesday at the Astros' Minute Maid Park.
