SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Marco Scutaro was taken out on a hard
slide by Matt Holliday while he was trying to turn a double play in the first
A few frames later, Scutaro exacted some revenge.
Scutaro hit a two-run single as part of a four-run fourth inning and Ryan
Vogelsong tossed seven frames of one-run ball in the San Francisco Giants' 7-1
win over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 2 of the NLCS.
With one out and runners on first and second in the opening frame, Allen Craig
slapped a groundball to shortstop Brandon Crawford, who threw to second for
the force out.
While Scutaro was trying to turn the double play, Holliday barreled into
the second baseman's left leg, which got pinned underneath Holliday. Scutaro
lay on the ground for a few moments to collect himself.
Scutaro, who hit a pair of singles, exited the contest in the sixth to have X-
rays on his left hip.
His replacement, Ryan Theriot, slapped a two-run single in the eighth inning.
Giants fans showered Holliday with boos each time he stepped up to the plate.
