It looks like Game 3 will be played tonight after all.

The best sign that the Phillies and Rays would play Game 3 of the World Series tonight? It wasn't the moment the grounds crew removed the tarp from the field. It was the moment a batboy took coffee to the bullpen.

Jamie Moyer emerged a short time later.

First pitch is at 10 p.m.

"The commissioner's office brought all the parties together. Everybody wanted to play," MLB senior vice president of public relations Richard Levin said. "Both clubs wanted to play. They wanted to sure the pitchers had their proper warm ups."

Levin said they would have limited player introductions today and full introductions tomorrow.

Asked how much longer MLB would have waited, Levin said, "We were right up against it." \
I'm told this will be the latest start for a World Series game in baseball history. The previous latest? Game 3 of the 1993 World Series between the Phillies and Blue Jays at Veterans Stadium. After a 72-minute delay, the game started at 9:24 p.m. It ended at 12:40 a.m.
