Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia blasts two home runs on Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(3:55 pm ET) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia did his best to get his team a win, but it was not enough as the Twins won 6-4, completing the three-game sweep.
Pedroia belted two, two-run home runs off starter Phil Hughes, giving him seven longballs on the season. The home runs were his only hits on the afternoon, as he extended his current hitting streak to seven games.
During the streak, Pedroia's batting average has risen from .270 to its current .290 clip.
Red Sox's John Farrell shuffles lineup before facing Angels
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to shake things up against the Angels, he did just that prior to Saturday's game, per The Boston Herald.
Farrell slotted second baseman Dustin Pedroia into the leadoff spot, inserted his Triple-A call up Rusney Castillo to play centerfield and dropped David Ortiz to the cleanup spot.
Hanley Ramirez, who was nursing his left hand after being hit by a pitch on Friday, is also back in the lineup. Shane Victorino will hit second in the lineup after missing two games with a sore calf.
The Sox (19-23) are currently in fourth place in the American League East Division.
Red Sox 2B Pedroia shines in loss to Angels
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia continued his hot-streak at the plate despite his team's 12-5 loss to the Angels on Friday.
Pedroia went 3 for 5 with an RBI in the loss. His last six games have been stellar, hitting .296/.321/.407 with eight hits and three doubles in 28 at-bats.
Dustin Pedroia, Hanley Ramirez searching for answers at the plate
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia and left fielder Hanley Ramirez are looking for a spark on offense after another week of struggling at the plate, according to MLB.com.
Pedroia has seen his average drop 23 points from .292 to .269 since the beginning of May, with just two extra-base hits.
"A little bit [surprising], but we will [hit]," said Pedroia. "You can't get frustrated. We had some good at-bats. We hit the ball hard. We just didn't get any hits. Didn't put it all together that one inning. The guy made a great play on me. If that gets through, it's a hit. Then we've got something going. We just haven't found a way to get that big hit and extend innings, but it's going to come."
Ramirez is down to .216 with no home runs since running into the left field wall in Boston trying to make a catch.
"I mean, we haven't had back-to-back games where we just go, and get going," said Ramirez. "The whole lineup. That's what we need. All the way from the top, all the way to the bottom. It is what it is. We haven't done that and we have to start doing it. Our pitching staff is doing pretty good right now and that's baseball. We just have to try to understand ways to stay patient. Keep the things going at the same time -- offense and defense."
David Ortiz out of Red Sox lineup on Sunday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz will get a rest on Sunday.
Ortiz was not in the starting lineup for the Sox. Hanley Ramirez moved to DH from left field to replace him. Brock Holt replaced Ramirez in left.
Replacing Ortiz in the third spot in the order was second baseman Dustin Pedroia.
|2014 summary: Dustin Pedroia entered the season coming off thumb surgery that likely hampered his production for all of 2013, and 2014 was deja vu all over again. In early April, Pedroia sustained a wrist injury, played through it, saw a further decrease in power, and then had season-ending surgery in September. Not only did Pedroia hit for extra bases at the lowest rate of his career, but his .278 batting average, .337 on-base percentage and six stolen bases were his lowest marks for a full season.
Playing time status: After two-injury marred years, Pedroia is something of a playing time risk, though in each season, he played through his injuries. Still, he has missed at least 20 games in two of the last three seasons, so he is far from a safe bet to play close to the full schedule.
2015 outlook: If Pedroia can stay healthy, there's reason to think he may be able to recapture some of his home run power for the Red Sox, but even that may not be enough to catapult him back into the top five among second basemen. In any event, he does appear to be an injury risk, so owners should treat Pedroia more like a top 10 option.
