Tests Come Back OK On Muddy Chicken's Foot

In the third inning of last night's pathetic loss to the Lastros, Dustin Pedroia fouled a ball off his right foot. He left the game in the ninth. X-Rays (which the Red Sox continue to insist on calling 'fluoroscans') came back negative—which is very positive.  Said Manager John Farrell, "Obviously, he's sore. We'll check him in the morning to see, or when he reports tomorrow, to see if he's available. He's a little bit sore after tonight." El Caballito could be back in the line-up as early as today.
