The Atlanta Braves are just two wins away from their first World Series title in more than two decades. The Braves didn't allow a hit until the eighth inning on their way to a 2-0 shutout of the Astros in Game Three of the Fall Classic. Ian Anderson went five hitless, while four relievers gave up just two hits the rest of the way. Austin Riley doubled in a run in the third inning and Travis d'Arnaud homered in the eighth for Atlanta, which takes a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven set. Game Four is Saturday.
