Former Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett thought he had an easy single when he lined a ball to right field in the third inning of the Dodgers' game Thursday against the Cardinals in Los Angeles. The right fielder had other plans.

Carlos Beltran took a few steps to his right to make the play and threw a strike to first base to beat Beckett by a step at first base.

Dodgers famed announcer Vin Scully's reaction? "Haven't seen that in a long, long time."

The Dodgers lost the game, 2-1, and fell two games behind the Cardinals for the second wild-card berth in the National League.

Beckett pitched 5 1/3 innings, giving up one run on seven hits, with two walks and six strikeouts, but got no decision in the loss. In his four starts as a Dodger, the former Red Sox righty has a 3.38 ERA.
