On Brendan Ryan's 8th inning play

Last night the turning point of G8: Astros @ Cardinals was when Brendan Ryan managed to field a grounder with Jeff Keppinger running right in front of him with the bases loaded, up by one with two outs, and Matsui "hustling" down the line. How did that play out?

Brendan Ryan:

"I lost sight of it ... but, unless I'm losing it, I swear that ball bounced left. My line to the ball, I hope, is not going to be that bad. Then, with the runner going in front, that blocked me for a split second and that didn't help, even with (Keppinger) moving a little bit. I kind of caught that ball behind me and I wanted to make sure I stuck it. But with Matsui running, I wanted to make sure I got it out of the glove. Thank God. That could have been a nightmare."
