WATCH: Shane Victorino with huge grand slam in Game 6 of ALCS
The Red Sox took a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning on a Shane Victorino homer. Here's the video.
This time around, it was Shane Victorino, giving the Red Sox a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Take a look:
That's quite the gut punch to the Tigers and their fans, after having a 2-1 lead in an elimination game.
Also of note here is that the Tigers most effective reliever at this point is Drew Smyly and he was burned after just one batter and two pitches. He induced a ground ball that would have at least gotten one out and maybe two -- though Jacoby Ellsbury was flying down the first-base line on the play. Instead, the bases were loaded and Tigers manager Jim Leyland elected to go to Jose Veras against Victorino.
It's also worth noting that starter Max Scherzer had been real good through 6 1/3 innings and was removed after 110 pitches.
And after the grand slam, the Tigers entered desperation mode.
