ST. LOUIS (AP) - Giants infielder Marco Scutaro is in San Francisco's lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS, two days after getting run over by St. Louis Cardinals slugger Matt Holliday on a play at second base.
Manager Bruce Bochy said he was 100 percent certain Scutaro would play after the second baseman felt well enough to participate in the off-day workout Tuesday night.
Scutaro injured his left hip and left knee in Game 2 Monday night when Holliday slid late while attempting to bust up a double play and charged into him. He's batting .500 in the NLCS with two RBIs.
