ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St, Louis Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran became the eighth player in major league history to amass 300 home runs and 300 steals when he stole second against the Kansas City Royals.

The other members of the club are Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonds, Andre Dawson, Steve Finley, Willie Mays, Alex Rodriguez and Reggie Sanders.

Beltran is the first switch-hitter to accomplish the feat.

He stole his seventh base in nine attempts in the second inning Friday night, and his 300th in 343 attempts overall. Then he was caught stealing after a pickoff throw by Vin Mazzaro and easily thrown out at third.

Beltran had 321 career homers, including a National League-leading 19 this season.
