Pedroia's heroics lift Sox to extra innings win over Rox

DENVER (AP) - Dustin Pedroia hit three home runs, including a tiebreaking shot off Huston Street in the 10th inning, to lift the Boston Red Sox over the Colorado Rockies 13-11 in a wild game Thursday night that lasted nearly five hours.

Boston averted a three-game sweep in a rematch of the 2007 World Series and bailed out closer Jonathan Papelbon after he blew a late lead at Coors Field for the second straight night.

Marco Scutaro singled with one out in the 10th and Pedroia sent a shot into the left-field bleachers off Street (0-1), who just recently was activated after spending 2½ months on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation and a strained left groin.
