Koji Uehara has quickly won over Red Sox fans this year by his excitable style on the mound in addition to his effectiveness there.

On Wednesday, he endeared himself to Red Sox Nation even further with a 1-2-3 inning in Chicago, followed by his routine of dishing out a high five to everyone in the dugout. However, Shane Victorino wasn’t paying close enough attention for Uehara’s liking — so the outfielder paid the price.

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.
