The Boston Red Sox  won the 2013 American League Pennant Saturday Night, defeating the Detroit Tigers 5-2 at Fenway Park in Boston.  The victory clinched the American League Championship Series for Boston, 4 games to 2, and sends the Red Sox to the World Series for the third time in ten years.

The Sox trailed the Tigers 2-1 in the seventh inning Saturday, when outfielder Shane Victorino slugged a grand-slam homer off Tiger releiver Jose Veras, giving Boston a 5-2 lead.  Boston relief pitchers Graig Breslow and Koji Uehara pitched the eighth and ninth innings, respectively, allowing no runs.  Uehara was named the ALCS Most Valuable Player.

The victory continues a miracle-like season for the Red Sox, who lost 93 games in 2012, and finished last in the American League East.

The Red Sox will face the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series, which begins Wednesday at Fenway Park.
