There was little offense by either side (just 8 total hits by both teams), but the Indians were able to group two of those together in the ninth inning for an exciting walk off win.

Game 3: 4/14 – Chicago White Sox 3 – Cleveland Indians 1
Player of the Game: Michael Bourn (1), 3.80
The Indians won the series, but lost the finale as the bats went silent yet again. Michael Bourn lead off the game with a home run, but the Indians were kept off the boards from then on. Brett Myers threw his best game by far in 2013. He allowed just two runs on a home run to give up the lead in the sixth inning. Vinnie Pestano then failed for the first time of the year, giving up a solo home run to Alejandro De Aza (remember him?) for his first run allowed of the year.
