Game 5 still in limbo

PHILADELPHIA -- Major League Baseball has yet to make a decision on the status of Game 5 of the World Series, which is supposed to resume at 8 p.m. today in the bottom of the sixth inning and the score tied 2-2.

The Phillies lead the Rays three games to one in the best-of-seven series. One more win and they win their first World Series championship since 1980.

It is cold, rainy and windy in Philadelphia, and while the chance for rain is supposed to diminish tonight, the temperature is expected to dip below 40, making for a cold, miserable night.

It won’t exactly be the ideal conditions to resume a World Series game, especially given the circumstances that led to suspending the game Monday.

There’s a good chance a decision will be made early this afternoon.
