Chicago White Sox
It was a wild Monday night at Fenway with Kevin Youkilis returning, Carl Crawford making his 2012 debut, and David Ortiz coming up lame in the eighth inning. Gresh and Zo break it all down!
Kevin Youkilis walked up to the plate before his first at-bat and the familiar chant of “Yooooouk” echoed throughout Fenway Park.
Once he finally got on the field, Carl Crawford wasted no time in making an impact for the Red Sox.
David Ortiz suffered a right Achilles injury in Monday night’s 5-1 win over the White Sox while rounding second base on an eighth-inning home run by Adrian Gonzalez, and will likely be sidelined over the next few days.
Adrian Gonzalez spoiled Kevin Youkilis’ return to Fenway Park, hitting a tiebreaking three-run homer in the eighth inning to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 5-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night.
Kevin Youkilis is excited to make his return to Fenway Park, and told reporters it will be all about baseball; not a rift between him and his former manager Bobby Valentine.
It may be Kevin Youkilis’ return to Fenway Park Monday night, but it also marks the return of Carl Crawford to the Red Sox lineup.
Kevin Youkilis is returning to Boston Monday for the first time since being traded to the Chicago White Sox on June 24, and for his former teammates, it will be a strange feeling to see Youk wearing different color socks.
While Kevin Youkilis became expendable with the Boston Red Sox, he’s been plenty productive on the South Side.
Chicago White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis refused to comment Sunday on the latest criticism from Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine.
