Royals-Red Sox preview

BOSTON -- If the Kansas City Royals are going to prevail in the rubber game of their three-game series against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday at Fenway Park, they're probably going to have to figure out how to keep second baseman Dustin Pedroia off the base paths.

The Red Sox leadoff man went 4-for-5 as Boston snapped a three-game losing skid with an 8-3 win against the Royals on Saturday. He has been on base in 18 straight games and has had a hit in 17 of those games. Before he grounded into a double play in the eighth inning he had a hit in 11 straight at-bats, one shy of the major-league record.

Pedroia is 33-for-72 since being moved into the leadoff spot by manager John Farrell.
