Can a World Series game be called due to rain after, say, 5 innings, giving the leading team the win?

Watching the Phillies-Rays Game 5 now, and I'm just wondering if it can be called due to rain, giving the Philles the win and the World Championship.

    I was wondering the same thing... if this did happen, it would be a public relations nightmare. Could you imagine this happening in any other sport?

    For regular season games they can be declared final after 5 innings, or 4 1/2 if the home team is winning. So yes.

    That would be such a crappy ending. Even as a Rays fan, I would want to see the Phillies win it in dramatic fashion rather than by default.

    They would never do it in a close game like this.

    As several people asked before you there can be a game called off due to rain. However, they will do whatever it takes to keep the game going.

    yeah you know this by now...but yes it could have been called in theory. there are no special rain out rules for the world series, even though that would have sucked

    if that happened... baseball fans (i believe even Phillies fans) are going to come together and start a riot which includes the slow and painful torture of whoever thought of the idea

    and Bud Selig...

    I think if they call the game and give it to the Phillies, it would cheapen it.

    So, I think they would suspend it.

    No because there would be 4 Innings left, Rays have come back from defecits in 4 Innings, Champs have come back from defecits in 4 Innings so no way no how, NOBAMA!!
