On June 24, 2010 Dustin Pedroia hits three homers, the last in the 10th inning at Coors Field off Houston Street, as the Red Sox defeat the Rockies, 13 – 11. The wild game takes 4 hours and 48 minutes to complete and ends when Jonathan Papelbon redeems himself for blowing an 11 – 9 lead in the 9th – his second blown save in a row – by setting down the Rox in the bottom of the 10th.

Pedroia was the twentieth different Red Sox player with 3-or-more homers in a game, but only the second Boston second baseman to do it, joining a hall of farmer Bobby Doerr. He was 5-5 with 5 RBI’s.
