Holliday to miss World Series Game 7

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday will miss Game 7 of the World Series.

Rookie Adron Chambers will replace Holliday on the active roster Friday, a day after Holliday injured his right hand during the Cardinals' 10-9, 11-inning victory over Texas in Game 6.

The team says Holliday has a sprained right wrist. Originally, the Cardinals said he bruised his right pinkie sliding into third base when he was picked off base by catcher Mike Napoli in the sixth inning.

Chambers is 1 for 5 with two RBIs during the postseason.

Chris Daughtry to sing at final World Series game

ST. LOUIS (AP) - "American Idol" alum Chris Daughtry will sing the national anthem at the final World Series game.

The lead singer of the band Daughtry will perform Friday night at Game 7 between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Grammy-nominated country singer David Nail will sing "God Bless America" before the game. It will air on Fox.

Former World Series pitchers for the Cardinals will hit the field, too: Bob Forsch will throw ceremonial first pitch, and Joe Magrane will deliver the official game ball.

The Cardinals won Game 6 in dramatic fashion Thursday night, coming from behind to win 10-9 in extra innings.

Other series singers have included Zooey Deschanel and recent "Idol" winner Scotty McCreery.
