Indians Vs. Marlins: Cleveland Drops Rubber Game Of Series

In a rematch of the 1997 World Series, the Miami Marlins once again bested the Cleveland Indians, this time taking two of three games in an interleague series at Cleveland. The Indians shut the Marlins out on Saturday, but Josh Johnson went seven innings and gave up just a single earned run in a 5-3 victory on Sunday.

Miami got three runs in the top of the eighth to take a 5-1 lead before Cleveland added a pair of runs in the bottom of the ninth. Logan Morrison had an RBI double in the inning and scored on fielder's choice later in the inning.

Jose Lopez had an RBI double in the ninth, but Heath Bell earned his fifth save of the season by getting the final two outs with the tying run at the plate.
