Wet and wild

I know we’ve all been saying all along that October never fails to bring things we don’t expect. Well, last night’s Game 5 was a new one for everyone involved.

For the first time in history, a World Series game was suspended, and you have to wonder how the Phillies and Rays feel about it considering where things stand.

Things were looking great for Philly early, with Cole Hamels dealing as usual and Shane Victorino’s first-inning single giving the home team a lead it didn’t look like it would give up:

But the Rays aren’t ready to give up and want to win a game away from home to extend the Series, even if it might take them two days to win that game. They clawed back against Hamels, got a gutsy start from Scott Kazmir, and tied the game up right here:

So now we’ve got at least three more innings of Game 5 at some point, and that’s about all we can figure out at this point.

What time will the game start?

Who’s pitching?

Can the Rays win and take this Fall Classic back to Florida?

The fun part is watching to see what happens.
