Phillies Top Rays In World Series Game #3

The Philadelphia Phillies scored a run in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday night in Philadelphia and won by a score of 5-4. They took a 2-1 series advantage over the Tampa Bays Rays. Matt Garza was not the unbeatable hurler who the Red Sox saw in game seven of their series, far from it. Tonight's game, again in Phillie, will start at 8:29 pm EDT and feature Sonnanstine against Blanton. Look for Philadelphia to take a commanding 3-1 lead in this soon-to-be over World Series. Hey, my prediction from yesterday was dead wrong so I might as well go out on a limb, WAY out, on this one. The only thing right about my last post was leaving open the possibility of the rain leaving the area sometime before midnight. I nailed that one and the game started with only an hour plus delay. The Rays probably wish it had continued to pour. And pour. And keep pouring.

In Red Sox news, right now there isn't much. Little whispers about possible free agent intentions are just that, very soft, almost inaudible mostly meaningless words. But some, such as the desire to sign Teixeira or lock up Kevin Youkilis, who, by the way, is the most valuable player who takes the Fenway field day in and day out, are based in fact. But those whispers are preliminary in nature...the logs aren't on the "hot stove" just yet. They're still drying and aging in a huge pile in my garage. (They really are.) When the mood (and weather) seems right, I have almost a cord of dry, cut and ready to go "aged for seven years" wood. It only takes some crumpled up newspaper on the grate underneath two or three logs and maybe a piece or two of kindling and voila! You have a crackling and beautifully warming fire. I have a fireplace in the living room, too. Between the two, that's a great combination for a room-warming and toasty night watching something great (not good but great!) on the Hi-Def TV, most likely a movie or something I recorded on the DVR. OK, ok, I went off subject a little, but I'll leave you with this. Have a wonderful Sunday, enjoy World Series game four tonight on FOX and FOXHD and if you're inclined, have a good time with the myriad of football games pervading the television airwaves almost all day long. As always, BE WELL. You can click on this post's title for more Red Sox and baseball news. Your comments are always welcome and always answered, and don't forget this...thank you SO much for stopping in once again! I LOVE IT! I love you!!

I really hope the Phillies pull this series off. I think the Rays heads have gotten a little too big lately. It's tough to have bragging rights when you lose the World Series, even if they did beat us in the ALCS.

Hello Mike! I think the Phils will wrap it up Monday night behind Hamels. Thanks! The Rays will not be able to play another game down in St. Petersburg until next year!
