Fenway Park was packed on Saturday night for Game 6 of the American League Championship between the Boston Red Sox and the Detroit Tigers . The Red Sox were trailing 2-1, but the crowd was still in good spirits. The crowd sang, “Don’t worry about a thing, ’cause every little thing is gonna be all right,” — the chorus to Bob Marley’s song, “Three Little Birds.”
Shane Victorino stepped to the plate in the seventh inning with the bases loaded. Then came Tigers reliever, Jose Veras. Strike one…strike two… Victorino missed on both curve balls from Veras. Then came another throw by Veras but this time Victorino connected. Victorino hit the ball just past the Green Monster for a Grand Slam, putting the Sox ahead 5 -2 over the Tigers, whose bullpen gave yet another disappointing performance.
