Image result for braves marlins

It was an evening game at Turner Field. 29,290 were in attendance when the Braves maul the Marlins on October 5, 2001, 20-3 to clinch the National League East title.

They would become the first team in professional sports to win 10 consecutive division titles. The Boston Celtics (1957-65) and Los Angeles Lakers (1982-90) had both won nine in a row.

The Braves would go on to win 14 in a row. Perhaps a record that will never be broken.
