BOSTON (CBS) – Kevin Youkilis is back in the lineup for the Boston Red Sox as they open a three-game series against the Astros in Houston.

Youkilis missed Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies with a sore left foot. He fouled a ball off the foot in Wednesday night’s 2-1 loss, but X-Rays came back negative.
