Phillies win wild, wet one, 5-4

October 26, 2008


— First it was wet, then it got wild for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Carlos Ruiz finished off a madcap ninth inning with an infield single with the bases loaded, and the Phillies outlasted the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-4, early today in Game 3 of the World Series for a 2-1 lead. This was midnight madness and then some on a rainy night that pushed the start to 10:06 p.m. and it wrapped up at 1:47 a.m.

Ruiz, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard homered for the Phils, but it took three kooky plays to win it.
