RAIN CHECK

The game, tied at 2, will resume at 8 tonight, weather permitting.

Foul weather made the Tampa Bay Rays wait until at least today to see if their season will continue. Moments after Carlos Pena drove in B.J. Upton in the sixth inning to tie the score at 2, the tarp was pulled onto the field at Citizens Bank Park, suspending Game 5 of the World Series until today. Rain had been falling much of the game but started to strengthen and forced the delay at 10:40 p.m. The Rays went into the game trailing the Phillies 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, and fell behind 2-0 in the first inning when Shane Victorino hit a two-run bases-loaded single off Scott Kazmir. Tampa Bay got one back in the fourth when Evan Longoria grounded an RBI single to left that brought home Pena, who had doubled off Cole Hamels. They were the first hits of the World Series for both players. Pena's opposite-field hit in the sixth drove in Upton, who had reached on an infield single and stolen second easily despite the sloppy field.
