And that’s a wrap!

Unfortunately for the Marlins though, it’s not a good one.

The team will be returning to South Florida, after being swung out of the NLDS by the Braves on Thursday, 7-0.

That marks a three-game streak for Atlanta, and the first time the Marlins got to be in a Championship Series since 2001.

The Braves took over largely thanks to Kyle Wright, against whom Sixto Sanchez and the Marlins apparently didn’t stand much of a chance, the Associated Press and South Florida Sun Sentinel report.

Wright struck out seven Marlins during six innings.

Sanchez allowed four runs in three innings Thursday, and Trevor Rogers was just unable to turn things around.

Corey Dickerson also tried to save the day for the Marlins, going 3 for 4, but it was too little, too late.

Meanwhile, the Braves, who are now 5-0 in the postseason, will face either the Dodgers or San Diego on Monday in the NLDS.

Time for the Marlins to rest and then regroup for next season. It’s not too far away!
