Report: Myers, Hamels tussle

The story states that Myers made a comment to Hamels, saying "What are you doing here?

Utley, Phillies send Series back to NY

Phillies second baseman Chase Utley homered twice and drove in four runs to help stake his team to a six-run lead, large enough for Philadelphia to withstand a furious late rally by the Yankees and hold on for an 8-6 victory in Game 5 of the World Series. The best-of-seven contest now shifts back to New York, with the Yankees ahead three games to two.
 
After the Yankees took a 1-0 lead against Philadelphia starter Cliff Lee in the top of the first inning, Utley slammed a three-run homer against New York starter A.J. Burnett in the bottom of the inning. The Phillies drove Burnett from the game after he allowed six runs in two-plus innings, and Philadelphia continued to add on, most notably with solo homers from Utley and Raul Ibanez in the bottom of the seventh inning that put the Phils up, 8-2. Utley's second homer of the game was his fifth of the World Series, tying a record for a single Fall Classic (previously set by Reggie Jackson).
