After smashing into the right field wall at Fenway Park during game one of the World Series Cardinals right fielder Carlos Beltran left the game after two innings. Beltran didn’t just leave the game he left the ballpark and went to the hospital.
After undergoing x-rays and a CT scan that came back negative Beltran was considered day-to-day. His availability for game two of the World Series was in serious question.
After under going extensive therapy and taking painkillers Beltran took batting practice and gave his manager Mike Matheny the thumbs up for last night’s game. Beltran would be in his normal spot for the Cardinals in right field and batting second.
When you’re a 16-year Major League vet that has never played in the World Series it’s going to take more than some bruised ribs to keep you out of the lineup. The Cardinals having been beaten by their own shoddy fielding and the Red Sox, 8-1, in game one of the World Series needed Beltran in that lineup for game two.

When the 2013 World Series began Wednesday night at blustery Fenway Park little did we know what the Cardinals had planned for the viewing audience.
It was a comedic tribute to the 2004 World Series 10 years after. Mental errors and physical errors. Futility and frustration. Slapstick and silliness. A no-show of startling proportions.
The Cardinal Way?
No more like a Cardinal...
