Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, October 29, 2008--Philadelphia Phillies players celebrate after clenching Major League Baseball's World Series in a 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Game 5 victory came after torrential rains suspended play Monday night for an unprecedented two days. Play resumed in the bottom of the sixth inning, tied at 2.

The title is the first major professional sports championship in 25 years for Philadelphia, which also has professional basketball, football, and hockey teams.
