5. Minnesota's roster was minus Midge...
remember three years ago, Cleveland vs. Yankees?



Midges rise from Lake Erie and buzz Yankees, helping Cleveland Indians win

Call them the 10th man for the Indians. And the 11th, 12th . . . maybe even the 10,000th.

A swarm of bugs descended upon players at Friday's playoff game against the New York Yankees, driving a few to distraction. Joe Keiper, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History's bug expert suspects they were midges.

"That's my best guess without going out there with a bugnet," said Keiper after watching television footage of bugs camping out on Yankee hurler Joba Chamberlain's neck.
