Beltran hits 9th inning, 2 out, go ahead grand slam

Boy that was sweet. It looked like Oliver Perez might be a hard luck loser, but instead he'll get a hard luck no decision.

Probably since Adam Wainwright struck him out looking in the LCS, I've had the impression of Beltran as a little bit of a choker. I mean, not that I believe in that sort of stuff, really, but if I did he'd be one of the guys I'd accuse of being not-clutch.

But there he was, teeing off Kevin Gregg to go from near defeat to almost certain victory. Once again I'm posting this before the game goes final, but since when has Luis Ayala blown a save opportunity? Oh, that's right. Tuesday.
