Dustin Pedroia Robs J.J. Hardy On Diving Web Gem In Sox’s Win (Video)


Boston Red Sox starting pitcher John Lackey was solid in his season debut Wednesday night, allowing just three hits over six innings in a 6-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.

It would have been four hits if Dustin Pedroia wasn’t playing second base.

With two outs in the second inning, the three-time Gold Glover flashed some serious leather on J.J. Hardy’s grounder up the middle, which seemed destined for the outfield. Pedroia ranged behind the second base bag to make a diving stop, then fired an off-balance throw to first baseman Mike Napoli to complete the highlight-reel play.

Pedey did his part at the plate as well, going 4-for-5 on the night with two runs scored. This guy can do it all.
