Blanton gets no-decision

Major League Baseball


UPDATE 11:19 p.m.: Pedro Feliz just tied the game with a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning against Joba Chamberlin. The home run ensures that UK alum Joe Blanton will get a no-decision in the game.

Joe Blanton has left the World Series game with the Phillies trailing 4-3. Blanton surrendered four runs in six innings and struck out seven while walking two. Chase Utley has hit a home run since Blanton left the game, but the Phillies still trail 4-3. The best Blanton can hope for in the game is a no-decision, and Philadelphia will face a tough climb if they lose tonight.
