NOTES: St. Louis' Allen Craig started at designated hitter, his first action since Sept. 4, and he went 1-for-4. He was sidelined due to a Lisfranc sprain in his left foot. ... Cardinals OF Shane Robinson started in place of CF Jon Jay for a second consecutive game after going 2-for-4 with two RBIs last Friday in the Game 6 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers that clinched the National League Championship Series. However, Jay entered the game to play center and Robinson moved to right after Beltran was injured. ... Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz will start either Game 3 on Saturday night or Game 4 on Sunday night after there was question whether he would be able to pitch in the series because of arm fatigue. ... Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski threw the ceremonial first pitch. ... St. Louis rookie RHP Michael Wacha (4-1, 2.78 ERA regular season; 3-0, 0.43 postseason) will start against Boston RHP John Lackey (10-13, 3.52; 2-0, 3.00) on Thursday night in Game 2.
