Tigers_Torii_Hunter_2013DETROIT — Torii Hunter said his body ached from ankle to neck Monday afternoon after tumbling into a Fenway Park bullpen chasing David Ortiz’s grand slam in Game 2 of the ALCS Sunday in Boston.

And while the veteran right fielder insisted he would have played if Game 3 was Monday night instead of Tuesday, there was something else that wasn’t quite right: his bat.

In 10 ALCS at-bats Hunter is 1-for-10 with three strikeouts.

“For me, it’s my back shoulder dropping,’’ Hunter said. “As a professional I have to make an adjustment.’’
