Matt Joyce, Rays Get Revenge on Red Sox, Setting Up Interesting Series Finale (Video)


The Rays did just about everything they wanted to on Tuesday night: Matt Joyce hit a home run, Dustin Pedroia was hit by a pitch and they won the game. All in all, a pretty good job of getting revenge for the shenanigans on Monday night.

That sets up an interesting series finale on Wednesday night between these two teams, who have quickly found a way to rejuvenate a dormant rivalry that has a chance to surpass Red Sox-Yankees in terms of on-field venom. It’s a small chance, but it’s definitely there, and series like this are the reason why.

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.
