The Florida Marlins reached the World Series in only their fifth season, but were heavy underdogs against the Cleveland Indians.

The Marlins defeated the Indians 4-3 to become the first wild card team ever to win the World Series. The final Game 7 was a nailbiter and had to be decided in extra innings after a tense, low-scoring game.

Tony Fernandez singled to drive Jim Thome and Marquis Grissom home in the third innings for a 2-0 Cleveland lead. The Marlins responded in the seventh through Bobby Bonilla’s home run and Moises Alou tied the game deep in the ninth before Edgar Reneteria’s game-clinchin play. Renteria’s single proved to be the difference as the Marlins won 3-2.
