Drew Pomeranz dazzles in win over White Sox

Drew Pomeranz dazzles in win over White Sox

The Boston Red Sox have placed second baseman Dustin Pedroia on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained wrist and activated third baseman Pablo Sandoval from the DL.

Pedroia, 33, was hurt in the first inning after falling over Jose Abreu while running to first base.

Red Sox pitcher Drew Pomeranz picked up his second straight win and 5th of the season by striking out eight in the game. Already appearing in 17 games atop the big league level this time around, the veteran third baseman is now batting.213 with three home runs and 10 RBI to accompany his underwhelming.269 on-base percentage. Pelfrey has had back-to-back promising starts, allowing just 2 earned runs over 11 innings with 10 strikeouts and 1 walk. He's spent a lot of work the last two offseasons trying to get a more consistent [right-handed] approach.

"He gives us a boost", Farrell said. The Boston bullpen had to clean up, going 4 innings while allowing just one run.

Manager John Farrell says the team will take a look "where things are" with the third baseman after the series against the White Sox. Juan Minaya (1-0) and Tommy Kahnle each pitched a scoreless inning before David Robertson got three outs for his eighth save in nine chances. Chicago (24-26) notched its fourth win in the past five games.

Price lasted five innings in his season debut in Boston's 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Sunday, but the left-hander's encouraging outing took a back seat to another injury for a key teammate. With the bases loaded and one out, Josh Rutledge drove in a run on a groundout. "I just block it out because [rumors] are not true until something starts getting to fruition and you guys talk to [White Sox general manager] Rick [Hahn], and that's basically it". He tucked his home run over the left-field wall to give the Red Sox a 4-3 lead. He went just 4-for-25 in seven rehab games at Triple-A over the past week, but his timing at the plate was likely impacted by the knee injury. Yolmer Sanchez tripled down the right-field line and scored on Kevan Smith's double. He heads to the DL with the Red Sox in second place in the AL East, three games behind the Yankees.
