When last we left the World Series, in the frigid rains of a Philadelphia night, the score was knotted at 2, the visiting American Leaguers having just finished their at bat in the top of the sixth. Play resumes this evening in the bottom of that inning, the homestanding Phillies at the plate. Cole Hamels, the starter for the Phils, is due to lead off, but it is safe to say he will be watching someone else take his swings from the comfort of the bench. Who will this mystery batter be facing? Grant Balfour was minding the dampened hill for the Rays when play was suspended. Will he be replaced by super-rook David Price? We shall see. Tampa has 9 outs to work with, more if it remains tied, and if they can't take a lead in that time, they and this series will be done. Contrary to some of the carping, and notwithstanding the low ratings, Part I of this game was a real humdinger of an affair, exciting and dramatic as only baseball in October can be. We hope Part II is just as swell, if dry. Comment away here, and enjoy the pregame.
