Fans who gathered in taverns for Monday night's game looked on with concern as the Rockies took a lead late in the game but became jubilant as the Phillies made a comeback.
Some chanted "Repeat!" to show their hope that the Phillies will win the World Series again this year. Last year's World Series victory ended a long drought in which the city could never win a championship in big-league baseball, basketball, football or hockey.
The Phillies must beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in a best-of-seven series that starts Thursday to reach the 2009 World Series.
