      BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox have activated second baseman
Dustin Pedroia from the 15-day disabled list.
      Pedroia was in the lineup, batting second, for Tuesday night's
game against the Los Angeles Angels.
      It was Pedroia's 27th birthday. The 2008 AL MVP has missed 44
games since being placed on the disabled list on June 26 due to a
broken bone in his left foot.
