To the ninth inning all tied up

It’s 4-4 here at Citizens Bank Park as solo homers by Chase Utley (seventh inning) and Pedro Felix (eighth inning) have tied the score.

Joe Girardi handed a 4-3 lead to Joba Chamberlain in the eighth inning and he struck out Jayson Werth and Raul Ibanez before Felix had his third hit of the night, driving a 3-2 pitch deep into the stands in left field for his first RBI of the Series.

Brad Lidge on for the Phillies. Girardi is likely to save Mariano Rivera for a save situation, which leaves him Phil Hughes, Phil Coke or David Robertson.
