ONE PHILLIES doubleheader + one rain delay + six extra innings + one controversial court verdict = one fierce fireworks kerfuffle early yesterday morning.
The Xfinity Fireworks Show lit up South Philadelphia skies about 1 a.m., the latest - or earliest? - such celebration many stadium neighbors could remember.
That left some grousing about rousing: "The kids were excited but never got to see them, because it was so late they went to bed. We were sleeping and it woke me up," said Nicole Cassello, 38, a mother of two on 10th Street near Johnston.
Others would have stayed up all night to see them: "It was late, but it was beautiful. I never miss them," said Anthony Gatto Jr., 83, who lives on 10th near Bigler.
