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).

Sox farm director declines SD job

According to a baseball source, Red Sox farm director Mike Hazen declined an offer to become the Assistant General Manager of the Padres. Hazen interviewed with former Red Sox Assistant G.M. and new Padres G.M. Jed Hoyer last week. Hazen's decision was first reported by ESPN's Peter Gammons (via Twitter).
 
Hazen, a native of Abington, Mass., has been the Sox' farm director since 2006, when he came from the Indians' front office. He spent two seasons as a player in the Padres' minor-league system.
 
It is unknown at this time whether Hazen might receive a title change as a result of his decision to stay with the Sox. His time with the club has been a fruitful one for the player development system, which has seen numerous players -- including 2007 Rookie of the Year Dustin Pedroia, starter Clay Buchholz, centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, shortstop Jed Lowrie...
