Red Sox beat Tigers 5-2 to advance to World Series

Shane Victorino belts grand slam in 7th

(Continued)

Victor Martinez lined one high off the Green Monster to make it 2-1, holding at first witorh a two-run single.
Brandon Workman came in and got Jhonny Peralta to hit a hard grounder to Pedroia, who chased down Martinez in the basepath for one out and then threw home to get Fielder in a rundown. Saltalamacchia ran him back to third and dove, somersaulting over him while making the tag.
Workman struck Alex Avila out looking to end the inning.
“We kind of lucked out and got out of that inning,” Pedroia said. “Salty can run.”
Scherzer worked out of a jam in the bottom half after putting runners on second and third with one out. He allowed three runs on four hits and five walks, striking out seven in 6 1-3 innings.
Buchholz allowed two runs on four hits and two walks, striking out four in five-plus innings.
Scherzer walked the first two batters in the third, but Victorino popped up a bunt and Scherzer made a sliding catch for the first out.
Pedroia hit a high fly ball that was just foul of the Carlton Fisk pole above the Green Monster. After it was confirmed by replay, he hit a hard grounder down the line that Cabrera fielded, easily stepping on third base before throwing to first for the double play.
NOTES: It will be the first World Series between the teams with the best record in each league since 1999. ...  Detroit C Alex Avila, who absorbed a body shot and a foul ball off the mask in Game 5, took another ball off the mask in the fourth but remained in the game. ... The Dropkick Murphys sang the national anthem before the game, followed by “Shipping up to Boston,” wearing Red Sox jerseys that said “Boston Strong” and the number 617. ... The Red Sox were 5-0 all time in playoff Game 6s with a 3-2 edge. ... Ellsbury had successfully stolen 18 bases in a row in the regular season and playoffs before being thrown out in the fifth. ... Victorino was hit by a pitch to lead off the sixth, his sixth of the playoffs, extending his record and setting a major league record with the 10th postseason HBP of his career. Alex Rodriguez had the old record.
