BOSTON -- Rookie second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who had five RBI in Game Seven of the ALCS, believes his postseason slow starts are over.
Pedroia was 1-for-9 over the first two games of the ALDS and had just one hit in his first nine plate appearances in the ALCS.
''It was tough,'' he said of the first few games of the first two rounds. ''I didn't know what to expect. But once I got into the flow of the series and played, it was better. In the playoffs, everything happens so fast.
''But as I've been saying, it's now how you start, it's how you finish. I'm not concerned. I'm comfortable now, regardless. I've played this game all year and had a great year. I'm ready.''
