Aaron Cook Feels He Cost Red Sox Win With Untimely Error (Video)


Aaron Cook was near perfect through five innings on Wednesday night. But one troublesome play ultimately cost the sinkerballer both a no-hitter and a much-needed Red Sox win.

After fielding a ball up the middle in the sixth inning, Cook turned to second base in hopes of turning a double play and getting out the inning. Instead, the pitcher threw the ball into the center field and suddenly a five-run stampede overtook the Sox 2-0 lead.

Boston fell 5-3 to the Orioles on the night, but a disappointed Cook blamed himself for the blunder and the defeat in the end.

Check out the video above to see Cook break it down during Red Sox Clubhouse Uncut.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
