Dustin Pedroia Continues to Find Hitting Stroke as Red Sox Turn Attention to Mariners


Dustin Pedroia Continues to Find Hitting Stroke as Red Sox Turn Attention to MarinersEditor'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.

For all the trouble the Red Sox have had offensively in recent days, Dustin Pedroia is doing just fine.

The Boston second baseman carries a 13-game hitting streak into Monday's game after a 3-for-4 night against Oakland. He's gone 20-for-54 (.370) during the stretch with two home runs.

Pedroia will get a chance to build on those results Monday as the Red Sox look to muster some runs after being outscored 54-15 during their West Coast road trip. Pedroia is 2-for-12 against Seattle starter Justin Vargas (13-9, 3.90 ERA) in his career, but one of those hits was a home run.

Here are the hitting temperatures for the Red Sox and Mariners for Monday, Sept. 3:
