Red Sox’s Dustin Pedroia Is No Easy Out For Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka

The Red Sox will face Masahiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees on Thursday night, and while some Boston players have struggled against the right-hander, Dustin Pedroia is not one of them.

Pedroia is back in the Red Sox’s lineup after being spiked in the leg, and the second baseman will look to sustain his production against Tanaka, against whom he has hit .304 with two doubles and one home run in his career.

You can hear Pedroia talk about facing Tanaka in the video above from “Red Sox Gameday Live,” presented by DCU.
