2008 Chachi #80 World Series Game 5a/Carlos Ruiz

World Series Game 5a - October 27, 2008
Phillies 2, Rays 2

From the report of the game: For the first time in Major League Baseball history, a World Series game has been suspended. Rain halted Game 5 of the Fall Classic in the bottom of the sixth inning on Monday night when the field at Citizens Bank Park was deemed unplayable. The tarp was pulled across the infield at 10:40 p.m., with the Phillies and Rays tied, 2-2.

Jim: "AAAAAaagggggggghhhhh!!!"

Cole Hamels: "It's unfortunate, it truly is. I'm going to have to give it to Mother Nature."

Carlos Ruiz: "It was real bad out there. The worst I've ever played in. It was very hard for Cole to pitch."

Commissioner Bud Selig: "We'll stay here if we have to celebrate Thanksgiving here. [The game] will be resumed when I believe that the weather conditions are appropriate. We are not going to resume until we have decent weather conditions."

Charlie Manuel, Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, Pat Burrell, and several other prominent Phillies: No comment.
