Pedroia and Sox Walk-off With Win Over Manny and LA

BOSTON (AP) – Dustin Pedroia singled home the winning run with

two outs in the ninth inning and the Boston Red Sox overcame Manny

Ramirez's homer to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Saturday.

Boston improved to 7-1 on a nine-game homestand and will go for

a three-game sweep of the Dodgers when Clay Buchholz faces Hiroki

Kuroda on Sunday night.

Ramirez homered in his second game back at Fenway Park against

his former team, a sixth-inning solo shot off Tim Wakefield.

Victor Martinez had a two-run homer and Kevin Youkilis a solo

shot for the Red Sox.

Wakefield made his 200th career start at Fenway, tying Roger

Clemens for most in club history.
