Thursday night, Marco Scutaro was exhausted, soaked with sweat in the humidity, in the game against the Astros. When he came in the clubhouse after the 4th inning, he quickly swapped into the other grey Giants jersey in his locker. Problem was, it wasn’t the “San Francisco” jersey he started out in. It was the Giants’ Alt “SF”
Oops. Scutaro, who joined the Giants in a midseason trade, can be excused for the mistake, especially since he only sported the wrong jersey for a half inning.
“I didn’t notice till I was in the dugout, but the pitcher (Vogelsong) was ready,” he said. “I thought, `Well, it’ll be one inning. Hopefully nobody will notice.’ ”
As it turns out, the jersey was a lucky charm, as the Giants put 8 on the board after his jersey switch to win the game.
