Cruz, Napoli in lineup for Game 7

Nelson Cruz and Mike Napoli are in the Texas Rangers' lineup for Game 7 vs. the St. Louis Cardinals.

Cruz strained his right groin in his final at-bat on Thursday night, and didn't play the outfield in the 11th inning. He will take batting pracitce on Friday afternoon, and then determine whether he can stay in the lineup.

Napoli rolled his left ankle in the fourth inning Friday, tripping over the second-base bag. He played through it the rest of the game, although he changed how he squatted behind the plate.

Cruz and Napoli both said after Game 6 that they intended to play in Game 7.
