|Youkilis Gives White Sox a Lift
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Kevin Youkilis changed Sox last month, from Red to White, and made the move from Boston to Chicago, where he is again an everyday player.
And through the first week and a half with his new team, the change has been good for both him and the AL Central leaders.
Taking over at third base and batting second, Youkilis had 11 RBIs and two homers in his first 11 games.
In his first homestand at U.S. Cellular Field, Youkilis has been hearing the familiar "Youk" cries that used to come down from Fenway Park during his successful run with the Red Sox. He had seven RBIs, two homers and a game-winning single in the 10th inning in his first four home games.
