Rain is a pain as we wait in vain
Admit it, you love that title. It’s probably my tv, but Kazmir looked nervous, pale and a little shook by the end of the first inning. Major pressure for this guy.
He starts the first by walking one, then launches a ball into Chase Utley ribs. Utley was expressionless. He’s used to it. Utley stands so damn close to the plate.
Victorino comes up to bat, hits a low pop to left field and scores two runs. Simple as that.
Phillies are in there like swimwear———>
Did you see the look on Kazmir’s face when they finally got the third out? I think at that point he was extremely relieved to get out that mess with only two runs scored.
Top of the fourth Carlos Pena hits a double that could have been a triple had he stopped watching the ball and just ran. No matter, Longoria was up next and scored him.
Now its 2-1 Phillies.
Philly gets a scare when Hamels tries to bunt and the ball hit the bat and jammed his fingers. I think I’ve figured out who Cole looks like.
It’s a cross between Jim Carey and Tom Brady. What do you think?
Am I way off here?? I dont think so.
You really were able to see the effects of the elements in the fifth inning. Rollins bobbles infield pop fly that Rocco Baldelli hit. Normally it was an easy catch. The wind was so bad he clearly couldn’t track it and the ball hit him in the wrist. There is some serious jacked up weather going on in Philly right now. Seems more like football weather. You know those Florida boys are hurting. Joe Maddon looked like he was colder than a well diggers butt in January.
After back to back walks in the fifth inning and Kazmir bids his farewell after a tap on the butt. Replaced by Grant Balfour who finishes off the inning with no damage.
Anybody think Balfour looks like Ed McCaffrey, former Bronco great??
I’m just saying. It’s weird. Or maybe I am.
Top of the sixth Pena singles and scores Upton and now things are interesting. Then they break to commercial, it comes back to the game, and the game is suspended due to the rain. Guess I’ll continue as the game does, if it does.
The time is now 8:57 pm MST
Game 5 is suspended until tomorrow (weather permitting). First suspended World Series game ever. . I wish Cole Hamels could carry on and finish what he started. The Phillies were of robbed of his full potential in this rainy incomplete game five, .
