Red Sox Finish June With 12-16 Record, Still Alive In AL East Race (Video)

1,341

After failing to get a hit off Jake Arrieta until the 8th inning and losing, 2-0, the Boston Red Sox finished the month of June under .500 with a 12-16 record.

That said, they still find themselves within striking range in the scuffling AL East. The team is only 6.5 games behind the Toronto Blue Jays for first place in the division.

The problem? Boston’s bats can’t seem to come to life, and when they do, the success isn’t prolonged. After a nice offensive weekend against the New York Yankees, the Red Sox put up a goose egg on the scoreboard in Monday’s loss to the Cubs.

After the game, Tim Wakefield and Steve Lyons talked about the Red Sox’s chances in the video above on “Red Sox Final.”

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.
