Red Sox star Youkilis scratched from lineup

Red Sox infielder Kevin Youkilis has been scratched from

Boston’s lineup against the Los Angeles Angels because of an

illness.

The Red Sox did not say what was ailing Youkilis. He was second

on the team with 17 RBIs going into Tuesday night’s game.

Youkilis was replaced at third base by Jed Lowrie, who was

scheduled to start at shortstop. Marco Scutaro started at short

instead.
