BOSTON (AP) _ Boston Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis left
Monday’s game against Toronto in the fourth inning after getting
hit by a pitch in the upper back.
Youkilis was hit by Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow and
replaced by pinch runner Yamaico Navarro, who started the fifth
inning at third.
After he was hit, Youkilis went to his knees and stayed down for
a few minutes while manager Terry Francona and a trainer came out
to see him. He walked off on his own.
It was the 77th time he has been hit in his career, extending
the club record.
