Carlos Beltran did what Torii Hunter could not do in the ALCS: Reach over the right field wall to rob David Ortiz of a grand slam.

Beltran performed the feat in the second inning of Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night, turning what would have been a four-run blast into a sacrifice fly.

Beltran, who is the Cardinals' hottest hitter, suffered a rib contusion on the play, came out of the game and was sent to a local hospital for further testing.
