SAN FRANCISCO (Bleacher Report) — Marco Scutaro appeared to be knocked out of the series in Game 2 when the diminutive second baseman was barreled over by Matt Holliday while he was attempting to turn a double play.

However, Scutaro stayed in the game long enough to deliver two hits and the key two-run single in the Giants’ 7-1 victory that night. He also came through with a two-run double to break open Game 6 on Sunday evening. He finished the game 2-for-3 with a walk, and he’s now hitting .458/.480/.583 with four RBIs in the National League Championship Series (NLCS).

If the Giants win the deciding Game 7, Scutaro will be a strong candidate to win the NLCS MVP along with Pablo Sandoval (.320/.346/.600) and Ryan Vogelsong (2-0, 1.29 ERA). If Scutaro can deliver another big hit in Game 7 in a Giants win, the award should be his despite the heroics of Vogelsong and the power surge of Sandoval.
