Game 3 - Indians 6, Angels 5 (11 inn)

GAME 3 - Municipal Stadium
Fred Newman vs Mudcat Grant
Larry_Brown After two one sided affair the fans were treated to an extra inning classic in game 3.  In the top of the 7th Lou Clinton and Lee Thomas had RBI singles off of Gary "Ding Dong" Bell to give the Halos short lived 4-3 lead.  George Brunet served up a lead off homer to Frank Chance to lead off the 7th to tie the score at 4-4.  A stalemate ensued until the top of the 11th when pinch hitter Jim Piersall singled home Charlie Dees, who lead the inning of by taking one for the team.  LA looked to have this one in the bag, but the Tribe was not ready to call it quits just yet.  It looked bleak for the home team when they quickly posted two out after Frank Chance led off the bottom of the 11th with a single.  Woodie Held was given an intentional pass for Don Osinski to face Leon Wagner who singled to right to tie the game.  Don Lee was called on to face light hitting Larry Brown who flared one to right to score Held and give the Tribe a walk off win.  Ted Abernathy would notch the win, but could have easily been the loser if his offense didn't bail him out.
Indians lead series 2-1
