Historic weekend in Washington
History on several different levels is being made by the Marlins.
In sweeping the Nationals over the weekend, the Marlins improved their fastest start ever to 11-1. The way the Marlins also won the three games at Nationals Park.
According to Elias, never before has an MLB team ever won a three-game series the way the Marlins did. That’s by trailing in the ninth inning, and rallying to victory in all three games.
You have to go back to the Tigers from Sept. 17-19, 1998, to find a team that has won three straight in this fashion. But then, Detroit beat two different teams. The Tigers rallied to beat the Blue Jays on Sept. 17, and on Sept. 18-19, they came back against the Twins.
