Extra Bases

Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark

Youkilis just took one off the fleshy part of his right forearm, just above his elbow, to lead off the seventh. By the way Youkilis hopped around the batter’s box, howling in pain it’s probably going to leave a nasty bruise.

After getting Ortiz to ground to second and issuing an intentional walk, Bootcheck (17 pitches, 5 strikes, 1 hit batter) got the hook with one out in the bottom of the seventh and was relieved by LHP Darren Oliver.
