    Beltran said his strained left knee felt good enough to play. "Well, if I played today, why not?" Beltran said. Beltran was set to play right field Friday night against San Francisco. However, Matheny said Beltran informed him that "everything is good" a day after Beltran took his place back in right field during Game 5. When the team took the field in the second, Carpenter was announced as Beltran's replacement. Beltran, who was not in the clubhouse after the game, appeared to move slowly down the line after grounding into a double play in the first inning. Carpenter hit a two-run homer off Matt Cain in his first NLCS at-bat after subbing for Beltran in Game 3, helping the Cardinals take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
