Phillies 4, Rays 3
From the Phillies.com report of the game: It took three days to complete Game 5, which was suspended due to the rain, but in the end, it was all worth it, because the Phillies defeated the Rays in five games to win the World Series. Cole Hamels, who won Game 1 and started the clincher, was named the Fall Classic MVP.
Geoff Jenkins: "You dream about getting that one big hit to help the team win. Tonight was that night for me."
Chase Utley, who threw out the tying run at the plate: "It was huge. It was big. It kept them from scoring."
Brad Lidge: "I never felt better in my life to get pummeled like that."
Charlie Manuel: "I always thought we could win the World Series. I knew we could beat anybody in our league. I look at what I see in our guys, I see chemistry and attitude and our makeup and how much we like to play and how much the Philadelphia fans back us, I know we can win the World Series. This is for Philadelphia. This is for our fans."
Ryan Howard: "We're winners. Rejoice. Nobody can take that away from the city of Philadelphia."
