Game 3 was a wild affair that ended with the Marlins grabbing a 2-1 series lead. In the top of the 1st, Gary Sheffield started the scoring with a solo shot to left. In the bottom half, the Indians retaliated with two runs thanks to two broken bat RBI singles by Matt Williams and Sandy Alomar. Florida took the lead 3-2 on a Darren Daulton homer in the 3rd and four walks allowed by Indians starter Charles Nagy in the 4th. However, the Indians got a gift in the bottom of the 4th, when they drew four consecutive free passes from Marlins starter Al Lieter, and then a throwing error by third baseman Bobby Bonilla allowed two more runs to score. The Tribe went up 7-3 on Jim Thome's 2-run blast to right in the 5th inning. His homerun was nullified in the 6th by Jim Eisenreich's 2 run homer that cut the lead to 7-5. In the 8th, the Marlins finished their comeback with Edgar Renteria and Sheffield each driving in a run, making the score 7-7. In the 9th, it all fell apart for Cleveland thanks to three errors and seemingly one hit after another by the Marlins, with Bonilla and Sheffield driving in a pair of runs each. When the carnage was over the Marlins led 14-7. Even though the Indians came back with 4 runs of their own in the 9th, it was not enough.
