The dream of 162 will end Sunday.

Dustin Pedroia was told by Red Sox manager John Farrell Saturday that he would be getting his first day off of the season when the Sox play the Orioles in the team’s series finale.

Pedroia is the only major-leaguer to have played in 70 games this season, having seen the second-most pitches of any player (1,279) while totaling the third-most plate appearances.

With the stretch of games the Red Sox are on — which has included a pair of 14-inning games on the current road trip – and Monday’s off day, Farrell eyed Sunday as a good time for Pedroia’s first rest of the year.

“It was to take advantage of the off day to give him two days down,” Farrell said. “Just talking with him and monitoring every day, this day was coming. He’s fatigued right now. I want to give him both days.

“Given what we’ve come through this stretch , there’s obviously more willingness to do that. He sees the reason for it. Really, physically how he’s feeling, he could use the day.”

Pedroia has been in the field for all but 10 of the Red Sox’ 616 1/3 innings.
