Ahh, fall in Cleveland. The crack of the bat, the crackle of the leaves. The 18-degree wind chill. And most of all, the snow, falling ever so gently on Jacobs Field as the Indians beat the Marlins 10-3. Unlike Tuesday night, when the Marlins warmed up quite nicely in temperatures seldom seen in South Florida, the Fish were frozen on Wednesday: Gold Glove catcher Charles Johnson uncharacteristically made a number of bad throws, and shortstop Edgar Renteria could barely see the ball through the ski mask he wore throughout the game. But things are looking up for the Marlins: tonight's forecast is for balmy temperatures in the 40's.
