NEW YORK -- Game 4 drew the highest television ratings so far of the World Series.

The Philadelphia Phillies' 10-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday night earned a 9.3 rating and 15 share on Fox, the network said Monday.

That's down 11 percent from the last Game 4 in which a team didn't have a chance of clinching. Cardinals-Tigers in 2006 drew a 10.4/18.

The first four games are averaging an 8.0/14, a 25-percent decrease from the 10.6/18 for the Boston Red Sox's sweep of the Colorado Rockies last year.

The rating is the percentage watching a program among homes with televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned into the broadcast among those households with TVs on at the time.
