BOSTON (AP) — Don’t look for Dustin Pedroia and Chase Utley to be turning any double plays during this World Series between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers.But the presence of both has already had an impact on the clubhouses of the two teams looking to add to their already rich trophy cases.With 10 All-Star appearances and three championship rings between them http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-khris-davis-jersey , Pedroia and Utley are two of the premier second basemen of their generation, each earning revered status that exceeds their stats and awards.Pedroia has spent his entire career in Boston, winning championships with the Red Sox in 2007 and 2013. Utley started his career in Philadelphia and spurred the Phillies team that won it all in 2008.But with a knee injury sidelining Pedroia and age slowing down Utley as he approaches 40, they have embraced the unfamiliar role of baseball elder this time around.“I don’t think either one of us will be getting any at-bats in this Series. So, we’re similar in that way,” Utley joked on Monday.This season has been a final lap for Utley, who in July announced his plans to retire at the end of his 16th season.He appeared in 87 games during the regular season but after hitting just .213 with one home run and 14 RBIs, didn’t make either of manager Dave Roberts’ NL Division Series or NL Championship Series rosters. He’s still soaked in every moment of the run so far.“This is the reason I wanted to play this year, was to get to this point Kendall Graveman Jersey ,” Utley said. “I’m excited for the opportunity that we have. … Dustin, I know his teammates respect him and look up to him. From what I hear he’s a good motivator and a guy you definitely want on your team.”Dodgers third baseman David Freese said Utley commands respect.“He just does so much for this group,” Freese said. “The guy just wants to win. … I view him differently than other guys.”Currently in his 13th season, the 35-year-old Pedroia has no plans of hanging up his cleats. That’s despite playing just three games in 2018 because of a left knee injury that has dogged him since he was spiked by Manny Machado on a late slide last year.He had surgery on the knee in the offseason but had an additional arthroscopic surgery while rehabbing in Arizona in July to clean up scar tissue. He had two initial procedures on the knee last October.“It’s hard not playing, but to be honest with you I’m enjoying this more than the other trips in years past,” Pedroia said. “It stinks not being able to play with them and be there with them, but I’m not upset about not playing because of the way they’re approaching the year.”His rehabilitation process was slow, though the four-time All-Star returned to action in May for three games. But he went just 1 for 11 with two walks before going on the disabled list again and eventually being shut down in September.Even before his season ended, Pedroia remained a presence in Boston’s clubhouse as it rolled up a franchise-record 108 regular-season wins.He texted teammates after big wins and during hitting slumps. He also called the clubhouse and was put on speakerphone to offer words of encouragement. He’s been on the field this week as the Red Sox prepared for Game 1 on Tuesday night.“He’s the heart and soul of this team http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-canseco-jersey ,” infielder Brock Holt said. “He’s been here the longest. He’s won two World Series. So to have him here — it’s always better with him here than when he’s gone.”That opinion of Pedroia is shared by Boston’s opponent.“He set the tone for this organization,” Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill said.Pedroia believes his words still have an impact.“I hope I still do,” he said. “If not, they’re asking me a lot of questions wasting my damn time.” OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) For a guy who has been a middle-of-the-order hitter most of his career, Jonathan Lucroy is quite comfortable anchoring the bottom of the Athletics lineup.Oakland’s veteran catcher proved that once again after convincing manager Bob Melvin to let him play in a day game following a night game.Lucroy drove in four runs to match his season high and the A’s completed a season sweep of Toronto, beating the Blue Jays 8-3 on Wednesday.”This is a workhorse, a guy that expects to be back there,” Melvin said of Lucroy. ”He had eight or nine RBIs in his last 10 games and had four more today. Not only is he doing his job behind the plate http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-jed-lowrie-jersey , he’s picking up the pace offensively and driving in some runs, too.”The A’s won all seven games between the two teams this year for their first season sweep of the Blue Jays.Oakland also moved into a tie with Seattle for the second wild card. The Mariners lost to Houston 8-3.Franklin Barreto homered and had three RBIs for the Athletics. Lucroy added three hits.”When you have a real deep lineup, sooner or later someone in the lineup’s going to get you,” Lucroy said. ”Might not be the first five guys, might not be the last four guys. It could be anyone in between.”Russell Martin homered for Toronto.”All three days we didn’t get really any shutdown pitching at all from our bullpen guys,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. ”We haven’t been scoring much either.”Sean Manaea (10-7) bounced back from a shaky outing in Colorado, pitching effectively into the seventh inning and allowing one run while frequently working through traffic. He gave up five hits, struck out five and walked two.Toronto starter Marcus Stroman (4-8) allowed seven runs and 11 hits in five innings.”They did a great job of putting the ball in play, early in the count and late in the count Tony Phillips Jersey ,” Stroman said. ”Frustrating. My stuff felt great.”Oakland backed Manaea with plenty of offense, most of it supplied from the bottom half of the lineup. The final five A’s batters combined for 11 hits and drove in seven runs.”We don’t have a lot of experience overall in our lineup but we have guys that can swing it and guys that can hit up and down,” Lucroy said. ”It’s really cool to be a part of. Whenever you have that kind of depth in your lineup it’s devastating for starting pitchers that we’re facing.”Lucroy, the No. 8 hitter, had a two-run single in the second, an RBI double in the fourth and an RBI single in the sixth.Barreto followed Lucroy in the lineup and had a two-run double in the sixth and homered in the eighth. Barreto started in place of All-Star second baseman Jed Lowrie.Russell hit his ninth homer, a two-run drive off Ryan Buchter, in the eighth.ROSTER MOVESThe A’s made a flurry of moves after the game. CF Dustin Fowler was optioned to Triple-A Nashville. OF Boog Powell was reinstated from the disabled list and sent to Nashville. RHP Carlos Ramirez was designated for assignment.THIS AND THATMelvin’s 601st career win as manager of the A’s moved him into sole possession of third place on the franchise list. … Oakland 3B Matt Chapman has reached base in a career-high 18 consecutive games. … Martin’s home run was his 63rd with the Blue Jays, tying him with J.P. Arencibia for second-most in team history by a catcher. … Randal Grichuk has 10 extra-base hits in his last 13 games.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: 2B Lourdes Gurriel Jr. was put on the disabled list with a high ankle sprain and bruised knee. … RHP Danny Barnes was activated after spending more than a month on the disabled list with left knee tendinitis.Athletics: OF Chad Pinder http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-walt-weiss-jersey , who injured his left elbow in a car accident in Colorado, has been taking groundballs and could begin swinging a bat Friday. … RHP Daniel Gossett underwent Tommy John surgery. … RHP Andrew Triggs (right arm nerve irritation) played catch for the second time in three days but has yet to throw off a mound.UP NEXTBlue Jays: No starter had been named for Thursday’s game in Seattle.Athletics: LHP Brett Anderson (2-3, 5.55) faces the Detroit Tigers at the Coliseum on Friday. Both of Anderson’s wins have come since he came off the disabled list July 8.—
