Red Sox Rally Late to Even ALCS with Tigers

Boston Red SoxThe Boston Red Sox rallied with four runs in the eighth inning and one more in the ninth to best the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series 6-5.

David Ortiz launched a grand slam in eight to tie the game 5-5 and Jarrod Saltalamacchia singled to left, to score Jonny Gomes for the walkout victory in the ninth. It was Ortiz’s third home run of this postseason, the 15th of his career.
