Game 6 game story; Red Sox angle

He has been vilified and ridiculed.   He has been booed and harassed.   He's been termed a bust and a waste.   And this morning, J.D. Drew is a hero.   The Red Sox right fielder, who did little this year to live up to his five-year, $70 million contract, belted a first-inning grand slam and added a third-inning run-scoring single as the Red Sox hammered the Indians, 12-2, in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series.   Drew helped the Red Sox dig themselves out of a huge hole; they were trailing in the series, 3-1, and now the two teams will play a winner-take-all game to see who will play the Colorado Rockies in the World Series.   Daisuke Matsuzaka will get the ball for the Red Sox tonight; Jake Westbrook will go for the Indians.   "We get to play tomorrow," said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. "We get to play a Game 7. We'll strap it on and I'm sure they will, too."   You couldn't have found an unlikelier hero for the Sox on Saturday. Drew entered the game hitting just .259 with three RBI in eight postseason games. In the previous five ALCS games, he was hitting .313 but hadn't driven in a run.   That changed with one swing of the bat on Saturday.   Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis collected infield singles off Fausto Carmona to lead off the bottom of the first, and David Ortiz walked on a 3-2 pitch to load the bases.   Carmona then battled back, striking out Manny Ramirez and getting Mike Lowell to fly to shallow right.   But Drew would let him escape. On a 2-1, pitch he sent a towering fly ball to center field that just made it over the wall as Grady Sizemore looked up helplessly.   "It was a situation where we had the bases loaded with nobody out and we weren't able to do anything," said Drew. "We had that same situation happen to us a couple of nights ago.   "I wanted to get a pitch I can handle and I got the count to 3-1. It came over the plate and I tried to stay up the middle and see what happens and luckily got the ball out of the park."   It was the third postseason grand slam in Red Sox history. Troy O'Leary hit one in Game 5 of the ALDS in 1999 and Johnny Damon hit one in Game 7 of the ALCS in 2004 against the Yankees.   It was the sixth grand slam in ALCS history.   The 4-0 lead became 4-1 in the top of the second when Victor Martinez homered to right off Red Sox starter Curt Schilling, but the Sox put the game away early with six runs in the bottom of the third against three Indians pitchers.   Drew, again, was instrumental in the onslaught. Ramirez and Lowell led off the inning with walks, and Drew singled up the middle to drive in Ramirez.   Rafael Perez then replaced Carmona, and he got Jason Varitek to hit a fly ball to center that sent Lowell to third. Jacoby Ellsbury, making his first start in the postseason, then singled to left to score Lowell. Julio Lugo followed with a double down the left-field line to drive in Drew and Ellsbury to make it 8-1.   The Sox weren't done. Pedroia walked to put runners on first and second and Youkilis then hit a drive off the Green Monster to drive home Lugo. Youkilis was caught in a rundown between first and second, but second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera's throw to first struck Youkilis in the helmet and ball bounded away, allowing Pedroia to score. Cabrera was charged with an error and Aaron Laffey replaced Perez.   The Sox, however, settled for their half-dozen runs.   The 10 runs the Red Sox scored in the first three innings broke the previous record of nine runs in the first three innings set by the Orioles in Game 2 of the 1979 ALCS.   The two innings Carmona lasted marked his second-shortest start of the season, and the seven runs he allowed were the most since he allowed eight in one inning against Oakland on June 27. The seven runs were one fewer than he allowed in the entire month of September.   It was Drew who everyone was talking about after the game. He struggled for much of the season, hitting .270 with 11 home runs and 64 RBI. But all that is forgiven now.   "This is not an easy place to not do well," said Francona, "but if he wants to drive in five runs again tomorrow, he can leave on a good note this winter."   Drew took a curtain call after the first-inning home run.   "It was great," he said. "It's been a tough year but that's because my expectations are so high. I think I had a good September and I wanted to go into the playoffs and have some good at-bats. It was a situation where I couldn't have asked for anything better."   The Sox added two more runs in the eighth inning off Joe Borowski, the runs coming on a sacrifice fly by Ramirez and a run-scoring single by Lowell.   The 10 early runs gave Curt Schilling a rocking-chair kind of night, as if he really needed it. One of the best postseason pitchers in major league history, he added to that reputation by pitching seven innings and allowing just the two runs on six hits. He walked none and struck out five.   The victory raised Schilling's career postseason record to 10-2 and dropped his ERA to 2.25. His .833 winning percentage is the highest in major league history among pitchers with 10 postseason decisions and his ERA is the third lowest among pitchers with at least 100 postseason innings.   With the Red Sox, he's 5-1 with a 3.48 ERA in seven postseason starts.   "He pitched like the guy we need," said Francona.   Brockton Enterprise
