ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — The Cardinals announced Friday afternoon that outfielder Matt Holliday suffered a sprained right wrist last night in World Series Game 6 and will be replaced on the Cardinals active roster by rookie outfielder Adron Chambers for tonight’s Game 7.
Chambers, 25, has appeared in 10 games during the postseason, going 1-for-5 with 2 RBI. With good speed, Chambers could be a weapon on the bases later in the game.
Holliday injured the wrist when attempting to slide back into third base in the sixth inning of Game 6 on pick-off play in which he was called out. Holliday look to clear his left hand and arm, maybe even before the tag was applied, but the right one collided and got tangled with Adrian Beltre and the bag. Holliday was seen shaking off the pain and looking at the right hand when walking off the field.
Allen Craig, who was part of the historical rally with a solo home run, took over for Holliday on Thursday night in left field, and will more than likely do the same for Game 7.
