Carlos Beltran Robbed David Ortiz of Another October Grand Slam

By Mike Cardillo

Carlos Beltran did what Torii Hunter couldn’t — rob David Ortiz of a grand slam near the short rightfield fence at Fenway Park.


Sports, man, it’s truly a matter of inches sometimes.

All the more incredible, earlier in the inning the Cards couldn’t catch an infield pop-up.

Beltran’s catch kept it from becoming an 8-0 game. It also added a few more million to his next contract when he hits free agency this winter. He also made a tremendous thud when his ribs when into the fence. He left the game and was replaced by John Jay.
