San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy calls it's a "good chance" second baseman Marco Scutaro will play in Game 3 of the NL championship series against the Cardinals on Wednesday after injuring his hip during Monday's Game 2.
Bochy said in a text message to The Associated Press on Tuesday that Scutaro is "doing fine," along with first base coach Roberto Kelly, who sustained a concussion when hit by a batting practice ball from Buster Posey on Saturday. Kelly missed Games 1 and 2 but travelled with the team to St. Louis on Tuesday, Bochy said.
Scutaro strained his left hip when the Cardinals' Matt Holliday crashed into him with a hard slide in Game 2 on Monday night at AT&T Park. Scutaro had an MRI on Monday night after the game.
Scutaro went down in the first inning of the Giants' 7-1 win, then hit a two-run single in the fourth before coming out of the game after the fifth inning.
Bochy called it "an illegal slide."
