The Red Sox had to come from behind in five of their last six wins since the end of July, but the team can’t rely on that strategy to win ball games.

Sure, it’s exciting to see Jonny Gomes pinch-hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning to spark a comeback, but watching the Sox play from behind is exhausting for fans. Especially when the games in the Central Time Zone go until the wee hours of the morning.

The Red Sox are playing and exciting brand of baseball this year, but letting up runs early will prove to be costly down the line. NESN Nation’s Alison Smith breaks down why in the above video.

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.
