(8/18/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia made it back into the starting lineup Monday against the Angels after missing Sunday's game due to an illness. Pedroia is batting .353 with one home run, five doubles, eight RBI and 16 runs in his last 21 games.

Jose Altuve connects for first career grand slam


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Astros second baseman Jose Altuve capitalized Sunday on a defensive mistake by Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, which led to his first career grand slam in an 8-1 win at Boston.

The Astros got a break when manager Bo Porter won a challenge after Bogaerts picked up Marwin Gonzalez's grounder, ran to second for what looked like a force and fired to first. The problem was he threw the ball about a step before he tagged the bag. 

The inning continued after the challenge. Joe Kelly then walked Robbie Grossman before Altuve parked a grand slam to put Boston up 6-0 in the second inning.

''That there's a big play,'' said Porter, who said he was first told by the umpires that the play wasn't reviewable. ''You look at that stage of the game and what proceeded to happen after that, Altuve with the big grand slam, one could say that was the biggest play of the game.''

Altuve finished Sunday's game with four hits. He is batting .338 with two home runs, three doubles, eight RBI and 11 runs in 15 August games.

Although Schoop is hitting just .214 in the second half, he has a .500 slugging percentage in 22 games. Though, he is batting .313 in his last 10 games.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was sidelined Sunday against the Astros due to flu-like symptoms. Manager John Farrell said Pedroia would be unavailable Sunday.
