A pair of key Rangers are dealing with injuries that could affect Game 7 of the 2011 World Series. Catcher Mike Napoli is appears OK after suffering an ankle injury in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series on Thursday night. Right fielder Nelson Cruz is a question mark for Game 7, according to Texas manager Ron Washington.
Napoli rolled his ankle sliding into second base, but remained in the game.
Cruz strained his groin muscle while tracking down David Freese's game-tying triple in the bottom of the ninth. He has had groin problems before in his career.
Washington could not confirm the status for Cruz in Game 7. Via the Dallas Morning News: "Cruz sort of hurt his groin a little bit and I didn't want to take the chance and run him back out there. I haven't heard anything from the medical department as to the seriousness of it, but we'll just have to wait and see how everything is."
