07:19 AM ET 10.24 | Outfielder Carlos Beltran saved a few runs for the Cards early Wednesday night, but little went the right way for the team otherwise. In the second inning, Beltran drifted back to the chest-high wall in right field and robbed David Ortiz of a grand slam by reaching over the wall and snagging a fly ball. Beltran crashed hard into the padded wall that separates right field from the Cardinals' bullpen. He completed the inning but could not remain in the game. ... Beltran was taken to a hospital for X-rays and a CT scan, which were negative. He returned to the clubhouse in the seventh inning. General manager John Mozeliak said Beltran was "day-to-day." Beltran had struck out in the first inning in his first World Series at-bat.

Yep
I feel bad for Beltran, swinging is going to hurt. Thankful that the crew reversed the call at second.

Man, what a catch! I was hoping he'd end up like Torii Hunter and go **** over tea kettle, and not come up with the ball.

He never had control of the ball, right call.

Yes, she settled right down when the call was reversed.

At the end of the season the Sox might ought to think about extending the fence in right field to keep a player or one of their own from getting seriously hurt.

Why? Is a busted shoulder any less painful than a busted rib?

At least a busted shoulder doesn't hurt as much when you do silly things like breathe

I'm glad they reversed the call. Still, I was surprised at some of the selections for umpries for the WS, especially Hirschbeck. He's confrontational and initiates arguments with players. I thought he was going to toss Victorino last night. And, last night, he call "time"" twice while pitchers were already in their windups. Strange man. Jim Joyce is part of the crew too but it was Dana Demuth who blew the call at second. In addition to blowing the call at the end of Gallaraga's perfect game a few years ago, Joyce also blew a call in the NLDS last year. Clearly, merit is not pat of the criteria for selecting umps for the WS.
