BOSTON -- The Red Sox finally scored a run.

After becoming the first team in postseason history to be no-hit through five innings in back-to-back games on Sunday night, the Red Sox strung together back-to-back hits in the bottom of the sixth inning of Game 2 to plate their first run of the American League Championship Series.

Full Game Coverage

Shane Victorino knocked a two-out single to left field to break up Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer's no-hit bid and Dustin Pedroia drove him in with a towering double off the Green Monster. David Ortiz struck out to end the rally as the Red Sox were behind, 5-1, at the end of the sixth.

The Red Sox avoided becoming the fourth team since 2000 to be shut out in back-to-back postseason games. The Tigers were the last team to do it when they were shut out twice in a four-game sweep by the Giants in last year's World Series.
