Open Thread: World Series Game 5 (cont.)

Controversy abounds in this tight game 5. Kazmir seemed to get squeezed out of several close balls and strikes calls early in the game which lead to a couple scoring opportunities for the Phils. Meanwhile, Hamels is benefitting from a very wide strike zone...

The field is virtually unplayable at this point, soaked with rain and the umpiring crew is playing tricks with the infield fly rule...

This game is rife for late-inning drama of one sort or another...

Game tied 2-2 in the bottom of the 6th after Pena came up with a HUGE RBI single to send in Upton in the top of the inning...

Update: 7:45 PM PST - As of now, play has been suspended. If the rain lets up sometime tonight, the game will resume and if not, the game will be played tomorrow or some other time and resume where it left off.

Update by baseballgirl 8:30 PM PST: This game has been called for tonight. They're going to try again tomorrow, but the weather looks less than favorable.
