Victorino's Slam Sends Red Sox To Fall Classic

Shane Victorino's seventh-inning grand slam lifted the Red Sox to a 5-2 win over the Tigers in Game Six of the ALCS and into their first World Series since 2007. Boston clinched the series four-games-to-two and will host the St. Louis Cardinals starting Wednesday in the Fall Classic. Clay Buchholz pitched five-plus innings of two-run ball in the start for the Sox while Junichi Tazawa earned the win and Koji Uehara notched the save. Max Scherzer struck out eight over six-and-a-third innings of three-run ball for Detroit and took the loss. Victor Martinez singled in two to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead in the sixth inning.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
