On June 26, 2010 The Red Sox get bad news before today’s game, learning that 2B Dustin Pedroia, their hottest hitter this year, has a fractured left foot, the result of fouling off a ball in last night’s game. He joins four other Sox regulars on the disabled list – Josh Beckett, Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Lowell and Jeremy Hermida. Then, in the game against the Giants, pitcher Clay Buchholz comes up lame in the top of the 2nd inning after reaching base with his first major league hit and must be removed from the game. But the bullpen comes up big, as seven relievers give up only 2 runs in 8 innings and the Sox win, 4 – 2. Darnell McDonald and Mike Cameron homer for Boston. Before the game, the Giants retire number 20 in honor of Hall of Fame OF Monte Irvin. In tomorrow’s game, C Victor Martinez will suffer a broken left thumb, adding to Boston’s injury woes.
