Injured players for both the Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals are expected to play Friday in Game 7 of the World Series.
Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz suffered a strained groin in his last at-bat of Game 6 on Thursday night and was seen limping down the dugout stairs. Cruz homered in the seventh inning, tying the single postseason record with eight.
Catcher Mike Napoli appeared to suffer a sprained ankle while running the bases early in Game 6 but stayed in the game. He is 6-for-16 with six walks, two homers and 10 RBI in the series.
Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday, who already was nursing a nerve issue in his hand, suffered a bruised finger while being tagged out when he was picked off third base by Napoli in the sixth inning. Holliday is 3-for-19 without an RBI in the series.
