NESN 30: Jarrod Saltalamacchia Helps Sox Walk Off With Game 2 Win In ALCS


The Detroit Tigers held the Boston Red Sox to just one hit in Game 1 of the 2013 ALCS.

Things weren’t looking much better for the Sox in Game 2 when they were trailing 5-1 in the seventh inning. But thanks to a David Ortiz grand slam in the eighth to tie things up, the Sox suddenly had an opportunity to walk off.

And they did just that. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit an RBI single to bring in Jonny Gomes in the bottom of the ninth, and the rest was history.

Check out the heroics in the video above.

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.
