BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Red Sox' worst month this year, so far, has been May. 18-11. Still a .621 winning percentage.

March and April, 21-7. June, 17-10. July, 19-6.

This month, even riding a three-game skid, 13-and-5.Boston really hasn't had to deal with any adversity this year, at least in the standings.

The Red Sox have the best record in baseball, but they've lost three straight for just the second time all year.

Sox skipper Alex Cora would like to keep it that way.

"Sometimes I hear people saying that it'll be good for them if they start losing, I don't believe in that one," he said. "Even winning, we're learning about our team. We've been playing good baseball and we knew that base-running had to be better, and it's been better. Certain situations, we have to be better. There's a lot of learning when you win. I know there's learning when you're losing, but the whole thing about like, they need to go through a bad stretch? Not really. People don't like to lose. They're being very disciplined as far as like, what we need to do on a daily basis to avoid losing streaks or get caught up on the winning, so that's how we feel about that."
