NEW YORK (AP) Forced from the field by COVID-19, the Miami Marlins returned with enough force to reach the playoffs for the first time since their 2003 championship.

An NL-worst 57-105 a year ago, they sealed the improbable berth on the field of the team that Miami CEO Derek Jeter and manager Don Mattingly once captained.

"I think this is a good lesson for everyone. It really goes back to the players believing," Mattingly said Friday night after a 4-3, 10-inning win over the New York Yankees.
