Marlins Perfect Postseason Series Record
With their 5-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs in Game 1 of their Wild Card series, the Marlins can extend their perfect postseason series record to 7-0.
In 1997, the Marlins defeated the Giants in the NLDS, Braves in NLCS, and Indians in the World Series. In their second postseason appearance in 2003, Miami (then Florida) defeated San Francisco again in the NLDS, Chicago in NLCS (thank you, Steve Bartman), and Yankees in the World Series.
Yankees set postseason record for most runs in first two games
On Wednesday, the Yankees completed their two-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians in the AL Wild-Card Round. After winning Game One 12-3, the Yankees defeated the Indians in Game Two 10-9. The 22 runs scored set a postseason record for a team in their first two postseason games.
