Singer Aaron Lewis stumbles in national anthem

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) There was an error at Game 5 of the World Series even before the first pitch.

Country singer Aaron Lewis stumbled early on during his rendition of ''The Star-Spangled Banner'' on Sunday night.

After starting with ''O say can you see by the dawn's early light, what so proudly we hailed,'' Lewis diverted from the lyrics. Instead of singing ''at the twilight's last gleaming'' he sang '' were so gallantly streaming,'' words that appear later in the national anthem.
