Dustin Pedroia Continues to Demonstrate Offensive Consistency for Red Sox

Dustin Pedroia Continues to Demonstrate Offensive Consistency for Red SoxEditor’s note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days.

When Dustin Pedroia is on top of his game, it's — as he'd put it — a Laser Show.

Pedroia enters Saturday's game against the Orioles riding a five-game hitting streak, which has put his season average at .299. The second baseman has also collected RBIs in back to back games after going 2-for-5 with a double, a single and an RBI in Friday's loss to the O's.

For Baltimore, Matt Wieters continues to prove that he just may be the best catcher in the American League.

Here are the Red Sox and Orioles temperatures for May 5.
