Former Rockie Marco Scutaro drives in World Series-winning run for Giants

The former Rockies infielder drove in the World Series-winning run on Sunday night.

Former Coloraro Rockies infielder Marco Scutaro had the key hit for the San Francisco Giants in Game 4 of the 2012 World Series, driving in the Series-clinching run in the 10th inning against the Detroit Tigers.

Scutaro was traded to the Giants on July 28 in exchange for minor league infielder Charlie Culberson, as Colorado looked to pick up value for the veteran in what was apparent at that point to be a lost season for the Rockies. At the time of the trade, Scutaro was batting .271 with four home runs and 30 RBIs in 95 games.

Initially considered to be complimentary player for the Giants at the time of the trade, Scutaro became one of the team's key contributors the second half of the season and into the postseason. The veteran infielder hit .362 in 61 regular season games with San Francisco, driving in 44 runs on 16 doubles and three home runs. In the postseason, Scutaro hit .328 and was named the NLCS MVP.
