Carlos Beltran Out With Stomach Virus

When Jerry Manuel posted his lineup this morning, Carlos Beltran was slated to start in centerfield.

However, Beltran had to be scratched because of a severe stomach virus, the same one that caused him to leave yesterday’s game.

Beltran will be replaced by Angel Pagan in centerfield who will also bat leadoff.

Here is the rest of the lineup for today’s rubber game… 

1. Angel Pagan, CF
2. Luis Castillo, 2B
3. David Wright, 3B
4. Gary Sheffield, LF
5. Daniel Murphy, 1B
6. Fernando Martinez, RF
7. Omir Santos, C
