Pedro, Pedro & Pedey Lead The Way To 8-6 Win

Pedro Ciriaco is hitting .800 with the bases loaded this year (4 for 5 with 7 RBIs). He got one of those hits today—going 3 for 5 with 2 RBI and a home run. Pedro Beato has pitched just two innings since coming to Boston from Flushing, but they were big ones today. Dustin "Pedey" Pedroia looked like the kid who led off the 2007 World Series with a home run, clouting a padding round-tripper in the 8th. All three "Pedros" contributed mightily to a "bounce-back", 8-6 win over the Kansas City Royals. On top of all this Pedro stuff, newcomer James Loney rapped a game-tying single in his first start with the Carmine Hose. The team's overall pitching performance was still pretty gnarly—but sometime gnarly gets a win. A needed win.
