Dustin Pedroia's 6th inning grand slam - the 100th home run of his career - powered the Red Sox to a 7-1 win over the Oakland Athletics at Fenway Park Friday night. Clay Buchholz was the beneficiary, picking up his 2nd straight win.
With the home run, Pedroia joins Carl Yastrzemski as the only players in Red Sox history with at least 100 home runs, 500 RBI's and 100 stolen bases. He is also just the 27th Red Sox player with at least 100 home runs and 500 RBI's (actually 503 now).
Buchholz went 6.1 innings allowing just 1 run on 3 hits and 3 walks while striking out 5. The loss went to Dan Straily.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
