Jarrod Saltalamacchia Drives Home Jonny Gomes to Lift Red Sox Past Tigers in Game 2, Secure Walk-Off Win (Video)


The Red Sox were held hitless through 5 2/3 innings on Sunday night, but they more than made up for it with some late-inning heroics.

After David Ortiz ripped a game-tying grand slam in the eighth inning, the Red Sox were able to stun the Detroit Tigers and finish off their comeback attempt in the bottom of the ninth. Jarrod Saltalmachhia singled home Jonny Gomes, sending the Fenway Faithful into a frenzy and prompting the entire team to mob Salty after his walk-off hit.

Check out the hit below that gave the Red Sox the unbelievable win in Game 2.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
