Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia homered for the second straight game and drove in four runs during an 11-7 win Tuesday at Toronto. He finished 2 for 5 with two runs, one walk and one stolen base.

Pedroia opened the scoring with a two-run homer off R.A. Dickey in the first inning. He then added a two-run single off Casey Janssen in the top of the 11th inning, which broke a 4-all tie.

The veteran second baseman is having a productive August, batting .304 with three home runs, four doubles, 13 RBI, 18 runs and three stolen bases in 23 games.

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Kelly allowed one run on three hits over six innings. He struck out four and walked two during the outing. Toronto was able to get to Kelly in the first inning. With two outs in the bottom of the first inning, Jose Bautista belted his 26th home run of the year. Kelly was able to settle in at that point. While he put two men on in the second inning, Kelly was able to work around it, keeping the Blue Jays off the board. He wasn’t really threatened by Toronto over the rest of his start.

The Red Sox mounted a comeback in the sixth inning, putting Kelly in line for the win. He improved to 3-3. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.

News
Red Sox pitcher Rubby De La Rosa couldn’t go five innings Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

De La Rosa allowed three runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings. He did not record any strikeouts and walked two. De La Rosa performed well early, tossing two scoreless innings to open the game. He had trouble getting through the last couple of innings, though. De La Rosa proved hittable to begin the third, allowing a single and a double to open the frame. A ground out led to the first run of the game for Toronto. Walks were an issue the next inning. De La Rosa put two men on via the walk, and then gave up a run-scoring single. The final run allowed by De La Rosa was given up on a fielder’s choice.

De La Rosa left with the game tied, picking up a no-decision. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start.

News
Just when you thought you could write off Mookie Betts for the rest of 2014 and check back to see what kind of progress he's made next spring, he does something to remind you still has time to redeem his rookie season.

That "something" was the solo home run he hit Monday at Toronto. It wasn't his first home run ever, and it wasn't a part of some monster game. But it shed some light on what has been an encouraging performance since his latest stint at Triple-A Pawtucket.

In eight games since returning, he has a .918 OPS. Granted, it's a small enough sample size for a couple o-fers to completely wreck it, but the most encouraging part to me is the .438 on-base percentage. That's compared to just a .280 batting average. Betts has seven walks during that eight-game stretch after walking just once in his first 13 games.

It wouldn't mean as much if plate discipline wasn't supposed to be a critical part of the game. He's had more walks than strikeouts each of the last two years in the minors. The change in approach might indicate an increased level of comfort at the big-league level. He hadn't even played a game above Double-A coming into the year, remember, and is still only 21 years old. Clearly, the Red Sox rushed him, so his struggles shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone.

For now, he's still eligible at second base, so his turnaround is something to monitor in Fantasy. I'm not so concerned about his playing time. The Red Sox could shift him to right field once Rusney Castillo is ready to go. By then, Allen Craig's foot will probably be barking again.

"It's always nice to mess around with your teammates and everyone's just going crazy in the dugout," Napoli said, per MLB.com. "But it's just a homer."

Napoli finished 2 for 5 with two runs, one hit by pitch and three strikeouts. He is batting .206 with three doubles, four home runs, 14 RBI, 14 walks, nine runs and 25 strikeouts in 20 August games.

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz couldn’t make it through the ninth inning Monday.

Buchholz allowed three runs on four hits over 8 1/3 innings. He struck out four and walked two during the outing. Buchholz was fantastic over the first eight innings of the start.

With one out, Buchholz allowed two singles and a walk to load the bases. He was replaced by Koji Uehara at this point. Buchholz threw 103 pitches during the start. With the bases loaded, one run came across on a ground out. With two outs, Uehara allowed a two-run double to Edwin Encarnacion to tie the game. All three runs were charged to Buchholz.

Buchholz picked up the no-decision for his efforts. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start.
