1-0. Pedroia broke the tie with a single and strengthens the Red Sox

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia hit single up the right field to tow the game's only run in the sixteenth inning to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 1-0 victory over Tampa Bay.

With the victory, the Red Sox are entrenched as leaders in the Eastern Division of the American League with a 1.5 game lead over the Yankees, who beat the Blue Jays 7-2 in Toronto.

Pedroia, who went 7-3, singled to deep right field to send the register to the Rangers Josh Reddick with the only run of the match.

Also Pedroia hit single in the fourth inning with what he said extending his hitting streak to 15 straight games hitting the hit.

The match was marked because the top of the eleventh episode, the pilot of the Rays, Joe Maddon was ejected for arguing with the referee.

While the bench coach of that ninth, Dave Martinez, also was ejected by umpire of the register, Chad Fairchild, in the middle of the inning for arguing.

The victory was credited with the relief of Alfredo Aceves (5-1) in three innings, striking out two of the 11 enemies he faced, who dominated with 27 submissions, 21 of them make it perfect for his ERA 3.13 .

The defeat was the closer Adam Russell (1-2) in one episode, allowed two hits, one run and walked one.
