Game Five was a Success

Well, the Phillies live to fight at least one more day. Essentially, they won because of a very nice third inning and held onto the lead. I have to say though, it was one of the craziest games I have ever seen. If you were watching, you will remember the bunt by Roy Halladay. It was definitely a foul ball; it bounced off home plate and into the left-handed batter's box but somehow it was called fair. I don't want to complain because it was a perfect sacrifice bunt, but the crazy play did not end there. Because that was ruled fair, Giants' catcher Buster Posey threw down to third baseman Pablo Sandoval who somehow missed third base. However, it looked like he tagged the base, so when he threw over to first base, I thought there was a double play and the inning was looking grim. Roy Halladay wasn't even halfway to the base because he thought correctly that the bunt was foul so he wasn't running. Crazy stuff, but the Phillies were able to capitalize on the insanity and proceeded to win the game, so I won't complain. Now we head back to Philadelphia and hopefully can push the series to seven games.
