Game 5 of the 2008 World Series lasted three days thanks to a rain delay-turned postponement. When play resumed, the Phillies took a one-run lead into the 9th, and after allowing a man to reach second base, closer Brad Lidge struck out Eric Hinske in the final at-bat of the Series, sealing the Phillies' second world championship. The win was the first major pro championship for the city since the 76ers won the 1983 Finals.
