ST. LOUIS -- Looks like what we suspected is going to happen tonight in Game Seven of this incredible World Series: Ace Chris Carpenter will start tonight for the Cardinals.
1:45 update: This just in -- Matt Holliday has been taken off the Cardinals' roster for Game Seven and not because of his braincramps of dropping a pop-up in left field or getting picked off third base. He has a right pinkie injury that was in a splint after Game Six. He insisted he will play but the Cardinals have put Adron Chambers on in place of Holliday.
Be sure to check out my Web-only story on the Cardinals' incredible Game Six win, featuring quotes from both clubhouses. Some incredible tidbits courtesy of the Elias Sports Bureau:
---The Cardinals were the first team to score in the eighth, ninth, 10th and 11th innings of a Series game.
---David Freese is the first player to collect two tying or go-ahead hits in the ninth inning or later of a Series game.
---The Texas bullpen became the first crew to ever blow three saves in the Series -- and were twice down to the last strike. Crazy.
