After robbing David Ortiz of a grand slam in Game 1, there was concern as to Carlos Beltran‘s availability for Game 2 as the outfielder suffered a rib contusion after slamming into the right field wall. Thankfully for the Cardinals, Beltran will be in the field tonight, although obviously banged up.

Meanwhile for the Red Sox, they’ll keep things the same at the top of the order while mixing at the bottom, which includes starting Saltalamacchia behind the dish.
