PHILADELPHIA -- Though not revealing his pinch-hitter to face Tampa Bay righty Grant Balfour, manager Charlie Manuel said Ryan Madson will start the seventh inning for the Phillies when Game 5 of the World Series resumes Wednesday night at 8:37 ET.
The bottom of the sixth inning could feature a series of moves, starting with Manuel's potential choice of left-handed hitters Geoff Jenkins, Greg Dobbs or Matt Stairs to pinch-hit. Rays manager Joe Maddon could go to lefty David Price, forcing Manuel to send up a right-handed hitter.
