Phillies Win World Series

To a chilly baseball diamond...where it only takes two days and three innings for the Philadelphia Phillies to take care of the Tampa Bay Rays and bring home the World Series Title, winning the decisive fifth game 4-3 in the conclusion of the game started Monday night.

Closer Brad Lidge completes a perfect season on the mound by striking out Eric Hinske in the ninth to end it.

The Phillies win ends 25 years of sports frustration in the City of Brotherly Love.

Philadelphia's last major sports crown was won by the 76ers, who won the NBA title in 1983.
