After missing six games with a partially torn adductor muscle in his right thumb, Pedroia was back at second and batting second for Boston. He went 0-for-3 at the plate but chipped in with a walk and a sacrifice fly.
Overall, Pedroia said he felt good, until Jarrod Saltalamacchia tied the game in the bottom of the ninth with a two-run homer into the green monster seats.
“The thumb was great, the only problem I had was when Salty hit the home run David (Ortiz) elbowed me in the face. I think he knocked me out,” he said after the loss. “That hurt man.”
