TORONTO (AP) _ Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is
back in the lineup after missing a game for an exam on his sore
right knee.

Pedroia was set to bat second Friday night when the Red Sox
played at Toronto.

The 2008 AL MVP was in Boston on Thursday when the Red Sox won
8-3 at Yankee Stadium. The team doctor said Pedroia had a bruised
kneecap, and the Boston star said there also was a small piece of
loose cartilage.

Pedroia and Boston manager Terry Francona say the injury isn’t
likely to get any worse if he keeps playing.

The 27-year-old Pedroia is hitting .247 this season.
