Dustin Pedroia is back in the Red Sox lineup Saturday night for the third game of their four-game series against the Astros despite leaving Friday’s game early after fouling a ball off his right foot in the third inning.

The second baseman left in the bottom of the eighth after running out a ground ball. Manager John Farrell said after the game that they would decide whether or not to play him Saturday.

Brock Holt will man third base, giving Will Middlebrooks the day off. Daniel Nava will play in right field.
