Marco Scutaro

2012

Second baseman Marco Scutaro was a midseason acquisition for the Giants, and boy, were they happy to have him in the NLCS. He delivered a two-run single in Game 2 to help the Giants win 7-1 before leaving the game with a hip injury after a takeout slide by the Cardinals' Matt Holliday. He had six multi-hit games, the most in an LCS since Kevin Youkilis in 2007. He finished the NLCS with a .500 average, four RBI, and six runs. His 14 hits tied an LCS record held by Hideki Matsui (2004 ALCS), Kevin Youkilis (2007 ALCS) and Albert Pujols (2004 NLCS). The Giants rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to advance to the World Series.
