Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

Pedroia's fifth-inning single broke a scoreless tie, but it would turn out to be the only run the Red Sox would score on the evening. It's Pedroia's third three-hit game out of his last four. While he hasn't hit for a whole lot of power, he has at least been getting on base, as he's slashing .277/.346/.383 with four home runs and 31 RBI on the season.

It's been a disappointing year for the second baseman, but he's found a bit of success in recent days. In his last five games, Pedroia has three doubles, three runs scored and four RBI. He's still batting just .267/.341/.377 on the year.

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBI versus the Tigers on Saturday.

The assumption was that Pedroia's home run power would come back some this year after he was limited by a torn thumb ligament last year, but the homer tonight was just his third in 59 games this season. He also has a mere 20 RBI. At 30, he shouldn't be over the hill just yet, and he could always go back to producing like an elite fantasy second baseman over the final four months. He just hasn't been anything close to that thus far.
