Red Sox
Youkilis extended his hitting streak to 21 games when he doubled in the first, then homered in the seventh. An impressive component of Youkilis's streak from the Globe's Gordon Edes: He has nine straight multihit games (19 for 40, .475). In the last 50 years, only one Sox player, Jim Rice, has had as many consecutive multiple-hit games. Rice had nine in 1978.
