Scutaro drives a high fastball into centerfield for the World Series-clinching run.
Marco Scutaro was relentless in racking up countless clutch hits for the Giants down the stretch and in the postseason.
The Tigers' solid starting pitching had cooled off the streaking Scutaro, who delivered six multi-hit games in the NLCS.
But, Scutaro would not be ignored as he stepped to the plate with two outs and the potential World Series-clinching run standing at second base in the top of the tenth inning.
Left-hander Phil Coke had struck out seven Giants' hitters in three innings of work in the World Series to that point. Coke could have given the Tigers a chance to extend the series with a walk-off win in the bottom of the tenth if he could have managed to get Scutaro out.
Instead, Scutaro sent designated hitter Ryan Theriot racing around third base as Tigers' center-fielder Austin Jackson corralled the ball and fired towards home plate.
The throw was late, and Theriot erupted in pure elation as the Giants dugout exploded.
Scutaro had done it again and the Giants were just three outs away from championship glory.
Romo closed out the bottom of the tenth, striking out the side, and sending the Giants into a celebratory frenzy.
