Why some fans say the Braves vs. Astros World Series is a matchup of good vs. evil

The World Series starts tonight with Game 1 in Houston, where the Astros will face off against the Atlanta Braves. The stakes are high for fans of each team. The Braves haven't gotten this far since 1999, while the Astros have been in the series three of the past five years — including in 2017, when they cheated using an illegal, sign-stealing, trash can-banging system to call pitches.

Flashback: Astros' playoff history vs. Braves

The Astros' first playoff trip in 11 years ended up being a short one, as they were swept by the two-time defending National League champion Braves. Atlanta took a 2-1 win at home in the opener behind Greg Maddux's complete game. The Braves took a stranglehold with a 13-3 win in Game 2, which remains the most lopsided playoff loss in Astros history.

Here’s what to know about the World Series matchup between the Astros and Braves

Another marathon is almost finished, and the Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves will meet in the World Series beginning Tuesday night.

A strong second half of the regular season propelled the Atlanta Braves into the playoffs, and they continued their hot streak into October, knocking out the Milwaukee Brewers and defending champions the Los Angeles Dodgers to reach the franchise's first World Series since 1999. The Houston Astros find themselves back in the World Series for the third time in the past five seasons, but their 2017 title is tainted by a giant asterisk after the franchise was found to have cheated during that season, and the next, by using a camera in center field to steal the opposing team's signs.
