Pedroia With Two Hits, Two RBI As Sox Defeat Orioles

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) _ Jon Lester allowed one run and a hit in four innings in his Grapefruit League debut and Dustin Pedroia had two hits and two RBIs as the Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-1 on Sunday.

Earlier this spring, Lester pitched two innings in a 25-0 win over Northeastern and 2 2-3 innings in a `B’ game against Minnesota.

Against the Orioles, the left-hander walked four and struck out two. The only hit he gave up was an RBI single to Adam Jones in the first inning. Pedroia’s two-out double off Dana Eveland in the second gave Boston a 3-1 lead.

Eveland gave up three runs– one earned– and six hits in two innings. In two spring starts, both against the Red Sox, he has allowed eight hits in four innings.

The Orioles finished with three hits.
