Pedroia to get day off on Sunday

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said after his team's 1-0 victory on Saturday that second baseman Dustin Pedroia -- who made a game-saving, diving play on a smash up in the middle with a runner on third in the eighth inning -- will be out of the lineup on Sunday. Francona suggested that an off-day on Sunday, coupled with Monday's off day, could prove of benefit to the slumping second baseman. Pedroia went 0-for-3 with a walk, and is now hitless in his last 13 at-bats and is 5-for-40 (.125) over his last 10 games.

 

"I think he needs a day off [Sunday]. But it’s not easy to give days off because he’s such a good player. We’ve talked about how good he is defensively, but when the game is on the line, he’s even better," said Francona. "[But] I think with a day game after a night game and the next day off, I think it will be great for him. I think that’s what he needs.”
