The celebration of the Braves World Series win over the Astros from last night is far from over as the team announced following the game that its parade will be this coming Friday (Nov. 5).
Earlier today, sources told WSBTV (Atlanta) that the parade will take place in both Atlanta and Cobb County, beginning at Centennial Olympic Park, through downtown Atlanta and up to Cobb County, eventually concluding at the Cobb Performing Arts Center and ending at Truist Park.
The Braves defeated the Astros by a score of 7-0 on Tuesday day night in Houston, thanks to home runs from Jorge Soler, Dansby Swanson and Freddie Freeman, as well as an RBI double by Freeman. The team also received a huge performance from starting pitcher Max Fried, who wound up tossing six innings of four-hit ball while striking out six and walking none. With an absolute mammoth 446-foot homer in the third to put Atlanta up 3-0 early, Soler took home the World Series MVP award.
