    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Final Score
        Florida 14 Cleveland 11
        Florida leads series 2-1

      • Cleveland starter Charles Nagy tied a World Series record by walking three consecutive batters in the the third inning. He was the seventh man to do so.

      • Florida starter Al Leiter tied a World Series record for most walks in an inning by walking four batters in the fourth. He was the seventh man to do so.

      • With three ninth inning errors, the Cleveland Indians tied a World Series record for the most errors by one team in a single inning. They were the seventh team to do so.

      • Florida's seven run ninth tied a World Series record for the most runs by one team in a ninth inning. The New York Yankees also scored seven in the ninth in Game 6 of the 1936 Series against the New York Giants.

      • The official game time temperature of 38°F (3.3°C) was the coldest recorded temperature in World Series history.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Florida Manager Jim Leyland: The sad thing about (Al) Leiter's performance was that he had great stuff. He just struggled with his control, but I don't think the cold affected us. The only way the cold affects you is if you're walking guys and your other guys have to stand around out there.

      • Cleveland Manager Mike Hargrove: They won the first game and we won the second game, and both teams just out-uglied each other tonight. I don't attribute the poor play to the weather. It was just poor play. We haven't played a game like that in a long time and I'd bet you a dollar they haven't either. Those things just happen. We just played poorly.

      • Cleveland Left Fielder Bip Roberts: It was a helpless feeling there in the ninth. Every time they put the bat on the ball, something bad happened.
