'Everything is good' after Beltran gets knee treated
SAN FRANCISCO -- Outfielder Carlos Beltran reported to AT&T Park on Saturday to receive treatment on his left knee, which, as Beltran relayed to manager Mike Matheny, responded well the day after returning to action.

Beltran, who was one of just a few Cardinals players to stop by the ballpark after the team flew in from St. Louis, was not available for comment on the team's off-day prior to Sunday's 6:30 p.m. CT Game 6 of the National League Championship Series on FOX. However, Matheny said Beltran informed him that "everything is good" a day after Beltran took his place back in right field during Game 5.


Beltran suffered a left knee sprain in the first inning of Game 3 on Wednesday. He missed the next day's contest against the Giants but was cleared to play in Game 5 after receiving acupuncture and extensive treatment on his knee.

In Game 5, Beltran went 1-for-4 with a stolen base. He is hitting .382 this postseason.

"We obviously know that he's an impact player and has the ability to come into the postseason and make a dramatic difference," Matheny said. "We love having him on the field and were a little concerned when we saw him go down and weren't exactly sure how long it would take. It's good to have him back, and we just need to keep him there."
