ABC News’ Matt Jaffe reports: Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., hopes to win big on Tuesday, so it is only appropriate that on the eve of Election Day, the Democratic vice presidential nominee will appear at his last rally of the campaign season with the World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies, as announced today by Biden’s spokesman David Wade.

Biden and the ballplayers will come together at an under-the-lights rally Monday night in the City of Brotherly Love. 

The Delaware senator is a Phils fan, but not as much as his wife Jill, who attended Game 5 of the series Wednesday night, when the Phillies beat the Tampa Bay Rays to win their first World Series in 28 years.

Biden missed the game due to his late-night flight from Florida to Missouri, but gave two thumbs up to reporters when his charter jet landed in St. Louis.

Earlier Monday, Biden will hit the Show-Me State once again, starting his last day on the trail in the key battleground state of Missouri before heading east to two other crucial states, Ohio and then Pennsylvania.

The Blue Hen lawmaker will spend Election Eve at his Wilmington home, voting in Delaware on Tuesday before finishing the day in Chicago with the man at the top of his ticket, Barack Obama.
