Boston Wins! Boston Wins! Boston Wins!

Game Two of the ALCS is a perfect example of why baseball is great. Lots of sports like to claim that teams are never out until the final whistle/out/whatever. Sports fans know all too well how untrue that is--but in baseball it certainly is.

After a masterful game by Detroit pitcher Max Scherzer (7 innings, 13 Ks, 1 ER) the game seemed to be in hand for the Tigers. However, in the 8th inning Big Papi changed that with a grand slam to tie the game at 5-5.

With their backs against the wall all of sudden the Tigers were unable to score in their half of the ninth inning, but with a single in their half by Jarrod Saltalamacchia the Red Sox were able to snatch a win away from the Tigers.

As he checked his phone to see the team completed an amazing 6-5 comeback the jerk that stole a home run from another fan and got booted has to really be kicking himself.
