Boston’s Youkilis out after fouling ball off shin
Red Sox slugger Kevin Youkilis has left Boston’s game against
the Los Angeles Angels after fouling a ball off his left shin in
the first inning.
Youkilis was hurt shortly before grounding into an inning-ending
double play Thursday night.
Jed Lowrie moved over from shortstop to replace Youkilis at
third base, and Marco Scutaro replaced Lowrie while taking over for
Youkilis in Boston’s cleanup spot.
Youkilis entered the opener of a four-game series against the
Angels batting .218 with three homers. He had just his second
multihit game of the season Wednesday in Oakland.
