The No. 2 seed Atlanta Braves and the No. 6 seed Miami Marlins crossed paths again this week, as the two sides met in the best-of-five National League Division Series. Under this year's postseason format, and because of COVID-19 concerns, every game will be played at Minute Maid Park in Houston.The Braves reached this point by sweeping the Cincinnati Reds in the Wild Card Series. The Marlins did the same against the Chicago Cubs, which qualifies as an upset as the Chicago was the highest seed.

Atlanta completed a 3-0 sweep on Thursday, handing the Marlins their first playoff series loss in franchise history. Here are details from the series:
