Pedroia: 'When you rake that happens'

PITTSBURGH -- Talking after his team's 4-2 win over the Pirates Sunday afternoon, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia downplayed the growing animosity involving Pittsburgh starting pitcher James McDonald. McDonald came close to hitting Pedroia in each of the No. 2 hitter's first three at-bats, with the final incident leading the Sox infielder to shout out at the Pirates' hurler.

"It's baseball," Pedroia said. "When you rake that happens sometimes."

Both teams were eventually warned by home plate umpire Greg Gibson after Andrew Miller came close to hitting the foot of Pirates catcher Eric Fryer in the sixth inning.

Pedroia finished the three game series at PNC Park hitting .308 (4-for-13) with two walks, a run and an RBI. He is now hitting .276 after entering June at .245.

"We did enough to win and that's basically it," Pedroia said. "We swung the bats good when we needed to and it's good to get out...

Saltalamacchia: Miller protected Pedroia

Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said that starter Andrew Miller was protecting second baseman Dustin Pedroia when he pitched inside to Pirates catcher Eric Fryer, resulting in warnings being issued to both dugouts in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Pittsburgh starter James McDonald had thrown fastballs up and in to Pedroia in each of his first three at-bats, causing the Sox second baseman to shout at the pitcher and resulting in what Saltalamacchia suggested was an intentional effort to throw inside to Fryer.

"You can't let it get out of hand," Saltalamacchia said on NESN after the Sox completed a 4-2 win. "You just want to protect your players. Pedey's up there three times and gets one in there. You've got to protect him, and that's what we were doing."

It's Miller Time for Sox in win over Bucs

PITTSBURGH -- Andrew Miller turned in a solid performance in his second start with the Red Sox, allowing two runs (one earned) over six innings in leading the Red Sox to a 4-2 win over the Pirates Sunday afternoon at PNC Park. The victory snaps a four-game losing streak for the Sox.

Miller finished his outing throwing 109 pitches (72 strikes), striking out four and walking two while allowing five hits.

The Sox were forced to come from behind after Pittsburgh claimed a 2-1 lead in the fifth inning on an Andrew McClutchen RBI single. The visitors first knotted it up in the sixth thanks to Josh Reddick's second sacrifice fly of the game, this one scoring Kevin Youkilis. The Sox then took the lead for good in the seventh thanks to a bases-loaded, run-scoring ground out by Dustin Pedroia and Youkilis' sacrifice fly, which scored David Ortiz.

Ortiz had reached earlier in the seventh on a walk after pinch-hitting for Miller. In his at-bat, the...

Drew leaves game with left eye contusion

PITTSBURGH -- Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew left in the second inning of the game between the Sox and Pirates Sunday afternoon at PNC Park due to a left eye contusion. Drew, who struck out in his only at-bat, suffered the injury prior to the game when a ball went off of his eye in the batting cage. Drew had only one chance in the field during his time in the game, catching a first inning line drive off the bat of Neil Walker to end the first inning. Darnell McDonald took Drew's place in right.

Jenks won't need another rehab outing

PITTSBURGH -- Red Sox manager Terry Francona said prior to his team's series finale against the Pirates Sunday afternoon that reliever Bobby Jenks would not need another rehab appearance and most likely would be joining the team in Philadelphia Tuesday. Jenks has been on the 15-day-disabled list June 8 with strained left intercostal muscles. He made a rehab outing Saturday night in Manchester, N.H. for the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs, allowing no runs and one hit in an inning of work (throwing 13 pitches).

"We didn't feel like he needed an extended period as long as he felt good," Francona said. "I think he felt pretty good."

In other injury news, starter Clay Buchholz (back) threw his first side session, Sunday, and is still hopeful to make the July 4 at Fenway Park against the Blue Jays.

It is still undetermined whether Carl Crawford, who is on the 15-day disabled list with an injured hamstring, will be ready to play...
