Shane Victorino had only two hits in his previous 23 at-bats against the Detroit Tigers, but all it took was one swing to make it all right.

The Maui native hit a game-winning grand slam in the bottom of the seventh-inning as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Tigers, 5-2, to clinch the 2013 American League Championship Series.

Victorino finished the night 1-for-3 with 4 RBIs.  So far, he's hitting .125 in the postseason.

Boston now heads to the World Series to face the St. Louis Cardinals.

Game 1 is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon at Fenway Park.
