Automated Insights

Jarrod Saltalamacchia delivered a walk-off single in the ninth as the Tigers were blown out by Boston, 6-5.

The Tigers opened the scoring in the top of the second when Victor Martinez came in on a single by Alex Avila off starter Clay Buchholz.

Max Scherzer went seven innings in a no-decision, maintaining his 2-0 postseason record after he allowed only one run on two hits with 13 strikeouts and two walks. Rick Porcello got his first loss in these playoffs after tossing a zero-out inning giving up no runs on two hits and walking no one. Koji Uehara (1-1), who gave up no runs on no hits with one strikeout and no walks over one inning, got the win. Avila was tops in the batter's box for the Tigers, going 2 for 3 with a home run, a run, three RBIs, and a walk. Martinez also had a great game, going 2 for 3 with two doubles, two runs, and an RBI. David Ortiz finished 1 for 3 with a home run, a run, four RBIs, and a walk in the win.

With the loss, the Tigers fall into a tie in the series at one game apiece. The Tigers will go up against the Red Sox Tuesday in Game 3 of the ALCS at Comerica Park at 4:07 PM EDT.
