Dustin Pedroia doesn’t look like a typical No. 3 hitter, but combined with David Ortiz, the two are among the best 3-4 combos in Major League Baseball.
The Red Sox face off against another tough duo on Thursday in Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder. The two sluggers have combined for a .324 average, 31 home runs and 125 RBIs, while Pedroia and Ortiz have a .310 average, 18 home runs and 92 RBIs together.
