Pedroia was cleared to travel with the team in the wee hours Monday morning following a visit to the hospital in Houston after he was hit in the back by a pitch in Sunday's game against the Astros and subsequently experienced swelling and trouble moving his left arm.

Houston Astros' Carlos Beltran (15) celebrates his two-run home run off Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Rick Porcello during the third inning of a baseball game, Saturday, June 17, 2017, in Houston. After a Carlos Correa walk loaded the bases, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran delivered quality, veteran at-bats, each driving a Porcello offering to deep center field for run-scoring sacrifice flies. Price produced a quality start in his last appearance, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks while notching six strikeouts over six innings against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.

The Astros got to within 5-4 in the sixth on home runs by Jake Marisnick and George Springer, but an RBI single by Bogaerts in the seventh extended Boston's lead to 6-4. As for Musgrove, he coughed up seven earned against the Indians, but since then has given up two on nine hits in 11.2 innings across his last two starts.

Last year's AL Cy Young Award victor lost his fourth straight - his second four-game losing streak this season - and has allowed five or more runs in three straight outings.

Bogaerts had just two homers entering Sunday's game. Jackie Bradley Jr. added a two-run double later that inning.
