SAN FRANCISCO (Bleacher Report) — San Francisco Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro put on one of the best pure hitting displays in a postseason series that we have seen in recent memory en route to winning the National League Championship Series MVP award.
But the work has just begun for the longtime veteran as he makes his first appearance in a World Series for the Giants against the Detroit Tigers starting on Wednesday.
Scutaro’s performance with the Giants after being acquired mid-season got lost in the shuffle because everyone was focused on Buster Posey, and rightfully so.
However, this postseason has been all about Scutaro. In fact, his bat has really helped save what has been an otherwise lackluster Giants offense in October.
