Rain and Snow Force cancellation of World Series Game 5

Plans to restart game five of the 104th World Series at Citizens Bank Park were washed out after gusting winds, rain and even snow swept throught the Philadelphia area on Tuesday.

The bad weather arrived early Monday but didn't lead to the suspension of game five between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Tampa Bay Rays until the players had slogged through five and a half innings on a waterlogged field. The game was tied 2-2 when MLB finally suspended play at 10:40 (02:40 GMT).

There was no letup on Tuesday as driving rain and gusty winds saw temperatures dipped to four degrees Celsius (39F) but with the wind chill it was below freezing.

Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig said they would try to finish game five on Wednesday, weather permitting, but there were no guarantees.

"While obviously we want to finish game five as soon as possible, the forecast for today does not allow for us to continue the game this evening," Selig said.

"We are closely monitoring tomorrow's forecast and will continue to monitor the weather on an hourly basis. We will advise fans as soon as we are able to make any final decisions with respect to tomorrow's schedule."

The Phillies lead the best-of-seven series 3-1.
