Kevin Youkilis is back! And he’s hitting home runs, which is a good sign for the Red Sox.

The third baseman-turned-first baseman homered in his second at-bat on Tuesday night, but unforutunately it was the only offense the Red Sox could muster against Brian Matusz. But really, it’s just nice to have Youk back.</p

That’s why NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is giving him our “Back With a Bang” award for his triumphant return from the DL. Who’s your player of the game? Vote in the poll below and leave your thoughts on the game in the comments below.
