Matt Holliday error on Marco Scutaro hit gives Giants extra run; karma for slide?
Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro laced a line drive to the left-center gap with the bases load in the bottom of the fourth. The hit would have scored two runs, but Holliday let the ball go through his legs allowing Angel Pagan to score the third run on the play.
The error by Holliday allowed the Giants to go up 5-1.
Some people considered Holliday’s fielding error to be karma for the left fielder’s hard slide into second base in the first inning that took out Scutaro.
Scutaro was later replaced at second by Ryan Theriot and taken to the hospital to be examined, but not before getting even with Holliday. We’re not sure if the error was karma for Holliday; fielding mistakes in the playoffs have are a regular occurence for him.
