Dustin Pedroia continued his hot hitting at Fenway tonight (5 RBIs)—clobbering a grand slam, solo HR and a single—to power Boston past Atlanta, 9-4. Also on the 'hit parade' was David Ortiz—who laced three doubles and knocked in two. Travis Shaw and Hanley Ramirez also had RBIs for The Carmine Hose—who are lighting up the pathetic Braves. Steven Wright had another terrific outing—going seven innings and giving up just one earned run. The Red Sox are now 12-9 on the young season—and remain just 1/2 game behind the division-leading Baltimore Orioles. Boston looks to complete the four-game "home-and-home" sweep of the Bravos on Thursday.
