The struggling Boston bats came alive with one swing Sunday night as David Ortiz cemented himself firmly in Red Sox lore with a dramatic grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning off Tigers closer Joaquin Benoit. The Big Papi blast tied the game at 5-5.

Boston would win it in the bottom of the ninth when catcher Jarrod Saltalacchia hit a walk-off single to score Jonny Gomes with the winning run and tie up the ALCS at 1-1.

The never-say-die Red Sox generated plenty of excitement in the twitterverse after this one.

Game 3 is Tuesday in Detroit as John Lackey faces off against Justin Verlander.
