Red Sox Ride Pedroia's Homers to Victory (44-30)
Last night the Red Sox beat the Rockies 13-11 in 10 innings. This was a thriller for sure, the Red Sox were ahead 11-9 in the 9th when Jonathan Papelbon surrendered 2 runs to blow his second straight save, he now has 27 strikeouts, 16 saves, and a 3.98 ERA in 30.1 innings. Dustin Pedroia (right) made history last night, becoming the first Red Sox player to homer 3 times in a game since 2004. Pedroia is having a great year at .293/12/41 as he has really been hitting for power. Adrian Beltre (.342/11/51) also hit a home run last night. Tonight, at 9:00 EST, Tim Wakefield (2-5/5.33/44) and Jonathan Sanchez (5-5/2.90/82) square off at AT&T Park. I hope the Red Sox can carry the momentum of this exciting win into the next series.
