Dustin Pedroia looks to build on his league-leading 15-game hitting streak and the Boston Red Sox will attempt to bounce back from a poor offensive showing when they open a three-game series against the Twins on Friday in Minnesota.
Pedroia went 1-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout to keep his streak alive Wednesday night as the Boston bats were held in check by Madison Bumgarner in a 2-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants.
Every day since May 3, a Red Sox hitter has held at least a share of the majors' longest hitting streak. Jackie Bradley Jr. stretched his to 29 games before passing the torch to Xander Bogaerts, whose streak reached 26 games.
