David Ortiz and Jarrod Saltalamacchia put everything that makes playoff baseball better than every other sport's postseason on display for all to see on Sunday night, with a dramatic game-tying grand slam and walk-off single that evened up the ALCS between Boston and Detroit at one game apiece.

But in the pantheon of MLB Championship Series rallies, where does what Boston pulled off in Game 2 rank?

To figure it out, we'll take a number of things into consideration, none bigger than the deficit that the team in question faced and the manner in which the comeback was mounted. Did we see it coming, or did these rallies seemingly appear out of nowhere?

That said, let's take a look at the 10 greatest single-game League Championship Series comebacks of all-time.
