The Philadelphia Phillies took advantage of some sloppy play in the bottom of the ninth to claim a 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in game three of baseball's World Series.

Victory in the rain-delayed game gave Philadelphia a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series with Game Four scheduled for Monday, again in Philadelphia.
