Episode Notes
45,940 people were in attendance.

Cole Hamels was named the Series MVP. He started and won game 1 and started the rain intettupted game 5, pitching 13 innings with a 2.77 ERA.

The suspension in game 5 resulted in an offseason rule change. All postseason games become suspended games if they are called before nine innings are played, regardless of whether the game would qualify as an official game using regular season rules. The game will be resumed when conditions permit at the same location from the point of suspension.
