The World Series will continue even deeper into November.
The Phillies extended the season by beating the Yankees 8-6. Chase Utley homered twice and drove in four runs for the Phillies, who got just enough from Cliff Lee and their battered bullpen to survive.
The A-Rod Redemption Tour continued with two doubles and three more RBI. Has a franchise record 18 RBI in this postseason. The MLB record of 19 is shared by Sandy Alomar Jr. (Cleveland 1997), Scott Spiezio (Anahei, 2002) and David Ortiz (2004).
The scene shifts to New York tomorrow. The Yankees will work out at Yankee Stadium while the Phillies will take the day off. Game 6 will be Wednesday night with Pedro Martinez facing Andy Pettitte, although Girardi claims that decision has not yet been finalized.
As many people expected, this World Series was not going to be a quick one.
