Five years old and already the Florida Marlins are setting World Series records. The Fish schooled Cleveland in a brutal ninth inning assault that saw a record-tying seven runs come across the plate, and gave Florida a 14-11 win in Game 3. Although Gary Sheffield, who drove in five runs, was the main Marlin, Cleveland gave this game away. Up 7-3 in the sixth, the Indians proceeded, over the next three innings, to play some of the poorest defense in recent Series memory. The team tied a Series record of its own with three errors in that ninth. Their chance at redemption comes tonight as rookie Jaret Wright takes on Tony Saunders.
