Alex Cora Pleased With Dustin Pedroia’s Return To Red Sox’s Lineup

Despite going 0-for-4 at the plate, Alex Cora still is encouraged by what he saw from Dustin Pedroia on Saturday afternoon at Fenway Park.

The Boston Red Sox second baseman made his 2018 debut Saturday in Boston’s 8-6 victory over the Atlanta Braves. Pedroia walked and scored a run, and the Sox skipper seemed encouraged, especially by his base running.

To hear manager Alex Cora’s comments regarding Pedroia’s return, check out the “Red Sox Extra Innings” video above, presented by W.B. Mason.
