(BaseballStL) -- With the bases loaded and only one out, St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday was picked off at third base by Texas Rangers catcher Mike Napoli in the 6th inning of Game 6.
In the previous at-bat, Rangers pitcher Alexi Ogando walked Yadier Molina with the bases loaded to score the game-tying run. Ogando had no balls and two strikes against Nick Punto when Holliday was picked off at third base.
Ogando eventually walked Punto to re-load the bases with two outs, but Derek Holland was able to keep the game tied after getting Jon Jay to ground out to end the inning.
Holliday left the game with an apparent hand injury from attempting to slide back to the base. Allen Craig replaced Holliday in left field.
Holliday, who has struggled during the World Series, also committed an error in the 4th inning on a pop fly. Holliday is hitting .158 with no RBIs in the World Series.
