BELTRAN BACK IN LINEUP: The Cardinals put Carlos Beltran back in the lineup after he came through batting practice and declared himself ready to play. Beltran bruised his ribs making a catch against the wall last night.

LESTER FACES INTERNET DEBATE: As you might have noticed at some point today, Red Sox starter Jon Lester was wrapped in a bit of controversy today. Video surfaced — originating from a Cardinals minor leaguer, of all people — of Lester using some sort of substance that was in his glove during last night’s game. It seemed to generate more heat online than with the league or with the Cardinals. Manager John Farrell and Lester each said it was resin, which Lester keeps in his glove to deal with sweat.

PREGAME CEREMONY: Mariano Rivera is being honored during a pregame ceremony. James Taylor is playing the National Anthem. Members of the 2004 Red Sox are throwing out the first pitch.
