The former major leaguer recalled several moments from that series, especially the heavy rain that fell at the end of the National League Championship Series.

"I really thought it was a sign from heaven of what was going to happen, I played in Oakland for four years and I've never seen rain like that," Scutaro said.

Scutaro was vital at shortstop for those Giants, who swept the series against the Detroit Tigers 4-0.
