Pedroia Will Not Play Tomorrow, But Says He's Okay

Dustin Pedroia, on his stumble and fall around second base in the eighth inning:
Similar to what I did in Anaheim. When I do something like that my leg is like a stinger like you get in football. My leg took a while to get feeling back. I was off the field already. In Anaheim the feeling came back in like a minute. Can't hold up the game that long. I slipped on the base. ...

I was just trying to get the feeling back. That's the part that's weird. It was just numb. I just hit a nerve that shoots that stinger feeling up your leg.
Pedroia said he was scheduled for an off-day tomorrow anyway, and he should be able to play on Wednesday afternoon.
