Watch Jarrod Saltalamacchia Rip Game-Winning Hit to Bring Red Sox Back in ALCS

Doug MeadCorrespondent IOctober 28, 2016

For much of the night in Game 2 of the ALCS, the Boston Red Sox were unable to solve Detroit Tigers' pitchers. 

But after David Ortiz hit a dramatic game-tying grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning, catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia completed the Sox comeback with his game-winning walk-off single.

For 14.2 innings, Tigers pitchers kept the Red Sox in check, holding them to just one hit and 30 strikeouts. But Shane Victorino finally ended the long drought in the the sixth inning.

Once starter Max Scherzer was finally removed from the game after seven innings, the Red Sox bats finally came alive.

Ortiz's slam added to his already-impressive postseason resume, and now Saltalamacchia adds his name to Red Sox lore with his dramatic walk-off as well.
