ST. LOUIS (AP)  Chris Carpenter will start on three days’ rest in Game 7 of the World Series for the St. Louis Cardinals.

The team confirmed manager Tony La Russa’s selection for the deciding game against the Texas Rangers several hours before the first pitch Friday night.

Carpenter started on short rest in the first round of the NL playoffs against the Phillies and lasted only three innings. The 36-year-old right-hander said after Game 6 that he’d be ready for the matchup against Texas’ Matt Harrison.

La Russa could have chosen Kyle Lohse or Edwin Jackson, both well rested, but leaned on his ace.
