Beltran went to the hospital for X-rays.
Beltran went back against the low wall and caught Ortiz's drive with the bases loaded for the second out in the second inning Wednesday night. David Ross scored on the sacrifice fly to make it 5-0.
Beltran was holding his side and pressing his chest in the outfield before the inning ended. His was due up fourth in the top of the third, and Jon Jay was waiting in the on-deck circle when the half-inning ended. Jay went to center field, and Shane Robinson shifted from center to right.
