Edgar Renteria ends one of the most thrilling Game 7 in World Series history, singling with two outs in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Florida Marlins their first World championship with a 3 - 2 victory over the Cleveland Indians. The five-year-old Marlins become the youngest expansion team to win the Fall classic. Pitcher Livan Hernandez wins the Series MVP award. Following the 2010 season, a panel of experts at the MLB Network voted this game the 13th greatest game of the past fifty years.  Full Series Recap
