MLB playoff updates: Braves sweep Marlins to advance to first NLCS since 2001

During MLB’s busy league division series, we’ll keep you updated on results, must-see moments and what’s next in each matchup.

What happened? The Atlanta Braves are headed back to the National League Championship Series for the first time since 2001.

After losing eight previous division series in the last 19 years, the Braves completed a sweep of the Miami Marlins on Thursday with a 7-0 win that now has them one round away from returning to the World Series.

Their Game 3 win was typical Braves — their powerful offense relentlessly pushed runs across the board while their pitchers kept their opponents from doing the same.
