St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday will sit out tonight’s Game 7 of the World Series with a sprained wrist, according to the team’s official twitter account. He will be replaced by rookie outfielder Adron Chambers on the team’s roster.
Holliday, 31, injured his wrist last night when Rangers catcher Mike Napoli picked him off at third base from his knees in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Cardinals’ slugger attempted to dive back to the base on the play, but Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre blocked the base with his leg. Holliday was hurt in the collision.
Despite being one of the Cardinals’ biggest offensive weapons, Holliday had just three hits in the series against Texas. He had, however, walked seven times in six games.
