Two flights and a ring for Burrell

Pat Burrell took advantage of tonight's game in Boston to hop on over to Philadelphia to pick up his World Series ring.

The Rays DH, who played left field for the Phillies last season, delivered the seventh inning double off J.P. Howell that led to the winning run in the Phillies 4-3 series-clinching victory against the Rays in Game 5 of the World Series.

The Phillies received their rings before Wednesday afternoon's win against the Braves.

Burrell, who signed with the Rays in early January, took a private jet back to Boston and is in the lineup against the Rays tonight.

The Rays will receive their American League champion rings before Tuesday's home game against the Yankees.

No word of Jonny Gomes or Trever Miller will fly in for the honors.

Could see Cliff Floyd, who signed with the Padres in the offseason and is on the DL with a shoulder injury.
