Marco Scutaro just exacted a bit of a revenge en route to giving the Giants a 5-1 lead over the Cardinals in Game 2 of the NLCS.
After being taken out at second base by Matt Holliday in the top of the first inning, Scutaro pulled a bases-loaded, two-out single into left field in the bottom of the fourth to bring home three runs. And wouldn’t you know it, Holliday booted the ball to allow Angel Pagan to score all the way from first base. That’s some delicious baseball justice right there. Scutaro was credited with two RBI while Holliday was given an error.
Mike Matheny sent Skip Schumaker up as a pinch-hitter to begin the fifth inning, so Carpenter is done for the night. Only two of the five runs he gave up were earned. Ryan Vogelsong worked around a two-out double by Carlos Beltran to work a scoreless fifth. He’s three outs away from becoming the first Giants’ pitcher to last six innings this postseason.
