The final out set off a massive party at The Battery and inside Truist Park, where fans finally let loose knowing that the Braves are World Series champions.
"To go through all the obstacles and win the World Series … it tastes so sweet," one fan said.
More than 10,000 people watched the game inside Truist Park, creating an atmosphere that made you almost believe it was being held in Atlanta and not Houston.
"It was a crazy vibe. It's so loud. We're all yelling," a fan told FOX 5'.

And when it was done, 26 years of near misses and heartbreak had finally come to an end.
"I was 5 years old when they won the last time, I'm 31 now. I wasn't going to miss this one for nothing," a fan said.
Some remembered loved ones who never got the chance to see the Braves bring a second title back to Atlanta.
"This one is for my grandmama, she was the biggest Braves fan. You couldn't touch the TV when the Braves was playing. I had to be here," one fan said.
Others reflected on how the team had brought the entire metro Atlanta area together.
"This is just the culture of Atlanta. It just shows that regardless of everything we're going to come out and show love," a fan said.
And love was in the air for follow fans and the World Series champs.
"It's Braves Country. It's the energy you exhibit in every game. It's a love for the team," fans said.
While sometimes it's not easy to be an Atlanta sports fan, Last night made it all worth it.
