The World Series continued Wednesday night with the Houston Astros hosting the Atlanta Braves in Game 2 of the Fall Classic. The Astros won 7-2 to tie the series at 1-1.

This is the third World Series in five years for the Astros, who won it all in 2017. But many baseball fans see the title tainted by a cheating scandal.

Major League Baseball discovered that the team illegally created a system that decoded and communicated the pitching signs of opposing teams during their championship season, leading Astros owner and president Jim Crane to Fire Director AJ Hinch and the Managing Director Jeff Luhnow.

Veteran Dusty Baker now leads the Astros and is looking for his first World Series title as a manager. Many of the squad’s stars from 2017 are still around, including second baseman Jose Altuve, shortstop Carlos Correa and third baseman Alex Bregman.

This is Atlanta’s first World Series appearance since 1999. The Braves achieved this by defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers, last season’s World Series winners, in the National League Championship Series. They are led by Brian Snitker, and their stars include first baseman Freddie Freeman, third baseman Austin Riley and second baseman Ozzie Albies.
