Matt Holliday Wishes Marco Scutaro Well Before Game 3 [VIDEO]
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday showed some respect to San Francisco Giants infielder Marco Scutaro before Game 3 of the NLCS.
A hard slide by St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday in Game 2 of the NLCS forced San Francisco Giants infielder Marco Scutaro to leave the game early. Holliday slid hard into second base to break up a double play. Holliday slid past the base and into Scutaro. Some people viewed the slid as a dirty play by Holliday. The Giants won Game 2 over the Cardinals 7-1.
Matt Holliday acknowledged Scutaro before a 3-1 win by the Cardinals over the Giants in Game 3 on Wednesday. It was the appropriate gesture to make. He didn’t grovel. He didn’t go above and beyond. It was a subtle way to basically say, “Hey, man. No hard feelings. I wasn’t trying to injure you. I was just trying to break up a double play.”
St. Louis now has a 2-1 lead over the San Francisco Giants in the NLCS. Listen to coverage of Game 4 of the NLCS this evening on 104.5 The Team. First pitch will be at 8:07pm ET. Our coverage of the NLCS will follow our broadcast of the Yankees @ Tigers Game 4 ALCS matchup.
