World Series Game 7: Rangers at Cardinals

After one of the most memorable World Series games ever played, the Cardinals and Rangers will decide the title in tonight’s Game 7 in St. Louis. “The reality is that if we don’t win (tonight),” Lance Berkman said, “(Game 7) becomes just a footnote to a nice season. But if we win (tonight), this is the stuff of legends.”

• Before the game, the Cardinals put LF Matt Holliday on the disabled list with a sprained wrist. He’s been replaced on the roster by speedy rookie Adron Chambers.

• The Rangers suffered two injuries of their own last night, but RF Nelson Cruz and C Mike Napoli are healthy enough to stay in the lineup for tonight’s finale.

• Rangers starter Matt Harrison is looking for redemption after lasting just 3.2 innings in Game 3, which was a lopsided Cardinals win. The Cardinals will go with their ace, Chris Carpenter, on short rest.

• According to MLB, at the peak viewing of last night’s wild Game 6, nearly one-third of TVs that were turned on in America tuned to the game. In St. Louis and Dallas, 80% of TVs that were turn on were showing the game.

• Tonight will be the 38th game of the 2011 Postseason (out of a possible 41). That’s tied with 2003 for the most games required to crown a World Series champion.

• Chris Daughtry is singing the National Anthem and former Cardinals starter Bob Forsch is throwing the first pitch.
