Phillies and Victorino are World Series champs

Shane Victorino Shane Victorino

PHILADELPHIA, PA (KHNL) - It was either the longest, or shortest World Series game ever depending on how you look at things, but either way, it was a big night for Maui's Shane Victorino.

The flying Hawaiian is now a world series champion.

Let's pick it up in the seventh inning of game five, with the go ahead run on second base Victorino does his job by moving the runner over.

Eventually the run scores and that would be the winning run.

To the 9th now, and Brad Lidge gets the K to end it and the Phillies, along Shane Victorino clinch the World Series championship.

4 to 3 the final score...

By the way, Victorino had two RBI in the game that started Monday.

The Phillies end a quarter-century of sports frustration in Philadelphia by winning the city's first major pro sports title since 1983.

Maui mayor Charmaine Tavares congratulates Shane Victorino on the World Series win.  In a statement released Wednesday, she says:

"This is a very proud moment for fans of the Philadelphia Phillies and certainly for the family and friends of Maui's Shane Victorino. I offer my congratulations on his and his fellow teammates' historic accomplishment and look forward to proclaiming a Shane Victorino Day throughout the County of Maui upon his return."
