Kevin Youkilis’ Injury Sinks Red Sox in Tampa Bay

Kevin Youkilis' Injury Sinks Red Sox in Tampa Bay Joe Maddon
is a very good manager, but a Little League coach could have had the smarts to intentionally walk David Ortiz three times on Tuesday night.

That’s because Kevin Youkilis left the game in the fourth inning, leaving a hole in the Red Sox’ lineup that couldn’t be filled. Niuman Romero did his best to fill in, but with just 11 career big league games to his name, that was a tall task.

As Dennis Eckersley rhetorically asked after the game, “What are you gonna do about it? You really can’t do anything about it.”

Watch what Tom Caron and Eck had to say about the potential loss of Youkilis could mean for the Sox heading into the All-Star break.
