Cardinals | Carlos Beltran sitting

St. Louis Cardinals OF Carlos Beltran is sitting the bench Wednesday, Sept. 12, in the midst of a bad slump at the plate. 1B Matt Carpenter (hands) is back in the lineup replacing Beltran for the first time since suffering lacerations on his hands after his bat snapped over the weekend. Carpenter needed stitches on both his hands. Beltran is hitting .199 since July 1 and has looked bad against breaking balls lately. Manager Mike Matheny is considering dropping Beltran in the order.
