Boston tied it 1-all on Pedroia's two-out RBI double in the third. Sonnanstine should have been out of the inning, but Iwamura dropped a throw to second on a play that would have been a forceout.
Notes: Pedroia's double was his 46th of the season, a club record for second baseman, breaking Jody Reed's mark of 45 set in 1990. ... The Red Sox activated RHP David Aardsma, on the 15-day DL since Aug. 21 with a strained right groin, before the game. ... Boston manager Terry Francona said RF J.D. Drew, sidelined with a strained lower back since Aug. 18, will see action this weekend. ... Red Sox CF Coco Crisp sat in favor of Ellsbury despite a season-high 11 game hitting streak when he's gone 22-for-43 (.518). "We needed to get Jacoby in there," Francona said. "Coco handled it. I think he wanted to play very badly. If I was Coco I'd want to play very badly, too." ... Maddon said 3B Evan Longoria, out since Aug. 7 with a fractured right wrist, might get into a game over the weekend.
