BOSTON (AP) All those long rehab days finally paid off Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia.

The 2008 AL MVP made his season debut Saturday after October knee surgery, helping the Red Sox rally for an 8-6 victory over the Atlanta Braves.

"There's been a lot of tough days," Pedroia said. "Today was great to be out there and play."
