The Tigers jumped out to a 1-0 lead in Game 2 of the ALCS on Sunday night at Fenway Park and after six innings were on top 5-1 over the Red Sox, but the Sox battled.
Then in the eighth David Ortiz crushed a grand slam that knotted the game up at five.
Then in the bottom of the ninth Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit one through the infield to drive in the game-winning run from third.
Adolfo was outside Fenway park as excited fans left the game and it was pure pandemonium. The fired up crowd spilled into the street and some couldn’t even find the words to describe what they had just witnessed.
