Marlins' five-run inning vs. Cubs connected to 2003 NLCS

The Marlins scored five times in the seventh inning of Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series on Wednesday leading them to victory over the Cubs.

Cubs fans likely will try and forget that inning, not unlike the last time Miami scored that many runs in a single postseason inning.

When was the last time they accomplished that feat, you ask? Way back on Oct. 14, 2003, in Game 6 of the NLCS.

Wednesday also was the Marlins' first come-from-behind postseason victory, when trailing in the seventh inning or later, since that infamous 2003 NLCS game.

Now, 2020 is the first time the Marlins have even played postseason baseball since 2003. So it's no coincidence they accomplished those feats this season.

But the fact that the past two occurrences of those instances came against the Cubs, 17 years apart? That's pretty wild.
