Problem 43661. Use R2016b Text Manipulations to Fix These Addresses (Part 2)

We have a series of addresses like the following which we'd like to reformat. All the addresses are in the Boston area of Massachusetts (MA) and should have a leading '0' before the 2 in the zip code. Can you insert the leading '0'?

Example:

Input:
adrIn = '950 Blue Hill Ave.Dorchester, MA 2124';
Output:
adrOut = '950 Blue Hill Ave.Dorchester, MA 02124';

Feature Tip:

R2016b introduces string arrays and text manipulation functions which can help. To learn more see MATLAB Characters and Strings.

Did you know the city of Boston has a number of urban orchards? This data comes form a list of these orchards. We're trying to reformat the addresses into a standard form. You can see the data here or import it into MATLAB with webread.
