First Joe Carter, then Ronde Barber, now mother nature. Now its not only players and teams that are keeping Philly teams from winning championships but now nature wont even allow it. Game 5 of the World Series was postponed last night do to pouring rains, the first time in history that a World Series game is suspended.
In the top of the 6th inning, the Rays got a RBI from Carlos Pena after BJ Upton slip ‘n slided into second base on a stolen base, tying the game at 2. Within minutes the tarp was on the field and MLB brass decided that the game will try and be resumed tonight at 8pm.
After 25 years of playoff heartache after playoff heartache, the Phils are now this close to winning the World Series, up 2-0 in the first inning, this close to breaking the 100 season title drought and Mother Nature rains on the parade ruins the evening and we have to wait, hopefully, only one more day.
Whenever the game picks up, it will be top of the 6th inning Ryan Howard (I hope this is right, think I remember hearing/knowing that) leading off most likely against Ray rookie phenom David Price who could be called to pitch multiple innings in the 2-2 game as the Phillies are now 3 ½ innings away from the title.
