Oct 2, 2020; Chicago, Illinois, USA; The Miami Marlins pose for a photo after defeating the Chicago Cubs in game two of a Wild Card playoff baseball game at Wrigley Field.

The Miami Marlins remain undefeated in postseason history.

The Marlins have stunned the Chicago Cubs and have swept them out of the Wild Card series. They are now a perfect 7-0 in postseason series and are the only team in the MLB with a perfect postseason record.

Sixto Sanchez made his postseason debut today on the mound and was nothing short of impressive. The 22-year-old pitched 5 innings, allowing 0 runs, walking 2, and striking out 6. He is the seventh-youngest pitcher to start and have five-plus scoreless innings played.

Since winning the World Series in 2016, the Cubs have followed up with three consecutive disappointing seasons.

After being knocked out of the NLCS in 2017, and then the Wild Card game in 2018, Chicago missed the playoffs entirely last season and have now been knocked out in the Wild Card round again.

Miami now moves on to face Ronald Acuna Jr and the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS.
