Roundtripper: Cameraman falls on Beltre's trot
ST. PETERSBURG -- It was a day of firsts for Adrian Beltre in the Rangers' 4-3 American League Division Series clincher against the Rays on Tuesday at Tropicana Field.

Not only did Beltre collect his first postseason home run in the first inning, but he also connected on another two later in the game, becoming the first player to homer three times in a Division Series game.

As Beltre rounded third and slapped hands with third-base coach Dave Anderson as he made his way toward home plate during his first shot, the cameraman capturing his trot tripped over his own feet and fell to the ground.

Beltre turned his head to the right and pointed at the cameraman. When he got back to the dugout and was pestered by teammates, Beltre held up both hands. After the game in the celebrating clubhouse, the Rangers third baseman jokingly asked where the cameraman was so he could douse him with champagne.

"I just hope he's all right," said Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler, who led off the game with a homer. "We got a good laugh out of it."
