The Cleveland Indians knot up the World Series at two wins a piece with a strong 10-3 victory over the Florida Marlins. It marked the second straight game that the Indians scored in double digits, following a 14-11 loss in Game 3 of the series.
The Indians jumped out to an early 6-0 lead after three innings and made the advantage stand up behind a strong showing from rookie right-hander Jaret Wright, who improved to 3-0 in the postseason.
Manny Ramirez started the scoring in the first with a two-run home run and Sandy Alomar followed three batters later with an RBI-double. Three run-scoring singles in the third padded the lead. Alomar knocked in another run with an RBI-groundout in the sixth, Brian Giles singled home a run in the seventh, and Matt Williams cleared the wall in left in the eighth with a two-run shot for the final tallies of the night.
