The Boston Red Sox trailed, 5-0, heading into the bottom of the sixth and seemed certain to head to Detroit in a 0-2 series deficit. Dustin Pedroia doubled to left center to score Shane Victorino in the sixth inning.   In the eighth-inning David Ortiz hit a grand slam to tie the game, and then a Jarrod Saltalamacchia walk-off single to left with nobody out in the bottom of the ninth to score Jonny Gomes gave the Red Sox a 6-5 victory, and evened the ACLS at one game apiece. “If I tell you I was thinking about hitting a grand slam, I’d be lying to you,” Ortiz said. “You try to put a good swing on the ball.” Tigers right fielder Torii Huter, who flopped headfirst over the wall after Ortiz’s hit, is ”ticked off.” “I’m [ticked] off,” Tigers right fielder Torii Hunter said. “The one guy you don’t want to beat you, he beat us. One of the best hitters in postseason history. And this guy, he hit the ball out of the park and ties the game up and they end up coming back and winning the game. That’s the way it goes. We’re all [ticked].” Game 3 of the ALCS is in Detroit on Tuesday, when Justin Verlander will face Boston’s John Lackey. The post David Ortiz’s grand slam saves Boston appeared first on Sports Glory.
