Dustin Pedroia’s Laser Show Continuing in Series Against Royals

Dustin Pedroia's Laser Show Continuing in Series Against RoyalsEditor'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.

Relax. It's just another Dustin Pedroia laser show.

The Red Sox second baseman carries a nine-game hitting streak into Wednesday night's game against the Royals. His average has risen to .309 in that span, and he's also collected four RBIs over the last two games.

Pedroia kicked off the series against Kansas City with a 2-for-3 performance on Monday. He also walked three times and scored three runs in that contest.

Will Middlebrooks remains hot for the Red Sox as well. The rookie third baseman had a hit in his only at-bat on Tuesday night, and is hitting .409 (9-for-22) with three home runs and nine RBIs since being called up.

Middlebrooks left Tuesday's game with a tight hamstring, though.
