Tigers_Jim_Leyland_2013 [2]Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland told reporters on Monday he regrets not telling Joaquin Benoit to pitch carefully to Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, whose eighth-inning grand slam Sunday night tied Game 2 at 5-5.

The Red Sox would go on to win in the bottom of the ninth and tie the ALCS at a game apiece.

“I made a mistake that I take full responsibility for,” Leyland said. “I should’ve reminded [Benoit] that we didn’t want to Ortiz to beat us.”
