World Series Game 5: Phillies 4, Rays 3

Top 9th: The Rays and Phils traded single runs, the Phils' on RBI singles by Jayson Werth in the sixth, and Pedro Feliz in the seventh; the Rays got their only additional run on a solo homer by Rocco Baldelli in the top of the seventh.

That brings in Brad Lidge, who gets Evan Longoria to pop out to shallow center. One out. Lidge goes 0-2 against Dioner Navarro, who shatters his bat and sends a ball into right field to put a man on first with one down.

Pinch-runner Fernando Perez steals second easily, bringing the tying run into scoring position. Ben Zobrist then hits a laser of a line drive right to Jayson Werth in right, freezing Perez at second. Two out. Maddon calls in Eric Hinske to pinch-hit for Jason Bartlett, prompting a mound conference.

Bartlett fouls off the first pitch, a little tapper wide of first. Hinske can't check his swing on a slider, and swings and misses for strike three to make the Phillies World Champions for the first time since 1980!
