Dustin Pedroia drove in four runs on three hits, and Ryan Dempster pitched six strong innings to pace the Red Sox to an 11-4 win over the Coloraro Rockies in interleague play at Fenway Park.

Boston ripped a season-high twenty hits. Pedroia was one of four Boston hitters with a trio of hits; the others were Jacoby Ellsbury, Daniel Nava and Jose Iglesias. He drove in the first run for the Sox in the bottom of the first inning (pictured) to drive in Ellsbury who had led off the game with a double.

The Red Sox scored in each of the first four innings. Meanwhile, Dempster was limiting the Rockies to two runs on sox hits and two walks over six innings while striking out four.

The win snapped a two-game losing streak and improved the Sox' record to 3-2 in interleague play.

The game also marked the return of Jerry Remy to the NESN television booth.
