World Series Injuries Catching Up with Cardinals and Rangers

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- While Thursday's Game 6 may have been one of the most exciting games in World Series history, the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers may be feeling the effects of it as Friday's Game 7 approaches.

Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz strained his groin during his final at-bat of the team's 11-inning, 10-9 loss to St. Louis. Catcher Mike Napoli twisted his ankle while going into second base in the fourth. Manager Ron Washington said Napoli was fine after the game, but said there wouldn't be any information on Cruz until Friday.

Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday bruised his right pinky finger sliding into third base during the sixth inning. He may miss Game 7.

Cardinals Beat Rangers 10-9 in Extras, Force Game 7

Rob Carr/Getty Images

(ST. LOUIS) - -  In perhaps one of the most exciting World Series games in history, the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Texas Rangers 10-9 Thursday night, courtesy of a walk-off home run by St. Louis third baseman David Freese in the bottom of the 11th inning, forcing a seventh game in the Fall Classic.

The Cardinals were down to their last strike in the game twice, once in the ninth inning and again in the tenth.  In the ninth inning it was David Freese who tied the game with a two-run triple to make it 7-7. 

Josh Hamilton hit a 2-run homer for the Rangers in the top of the tenth to put Texas up 9-7.  But the Cardinals refused to give up -- Lance Berkman hit an RBI single in the 10th, ultimately setting the stage for Freese's heroics.

“It’s unreal, it’s awesome to be a part of with this team,” said the Game 6 hero.

"I understand it's not over till you get that last out," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "I was just sitting there praying we got that last out. We didn't get it."

Game 7 will be Friday night.  This will be the first Game 7 since the 2002 World Series, when the Angels captured the championship over the Giants.

Rangers Top Cardinals 4-2 in Game 5 of World Series; Take 3-2 Series Lead

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- Can you hear me now? Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa might be asking that after a phone call may have cost his team a World Series title.

With the game tied at 2 in the eighth inning, Rangers catcher Mike Napoli hit a go-ahead RBI double off Cardinals reliever Mark Rzepczynski to take a 4-2 lead. The problem though was that Rzepczynski was never supposed to face the red-hot Napoli in the first place. La Russa earlier had called bullpen coach Derek Lilliquist because he wanted pitcher Jason Motte to face Napoli. Lilliquist thought he heard "Lynn," as in relief pitcher Matt Lynn. Lynn was not supposed to pitch that night, and with Motte not ready to go into the game, La Russa was forced to keep Rzepczynski in -- and the team paid for it.

When asked about the miscommuniation between he and the bullpen, La Russa blamed the incident on crowd noise.

"I mean, it's loud down there and sometimes you call down there and you have to wait until the crowd and a guy gets up late. I mean, this is not unusual," La Russa said.

Regardless of how or why it happened, the Rangers are now just one win away from their first World Series title in franchise history. Game 6 will be played Wednesday night in St. Louis.
