Lester fans 10 Phillies
The home run off Joe Blanton was Pedroia's second of the spring. With opening day just over a week away, the 2008 American League MVP said his bat is ready.
The 31-year-old Blanton, who missed the majority of the 2011 season with an elbow injury, allowed five runs on seven hits in five innings.
Lester gave up two hits and didn't allow a walk.
