Kevin Youkilis was 0-1 against the Indians. Youk was removed from the game before the start of the 3rd inning after he jammed his right thumb lining out to short in his 1st AB. X-rays were negative, but he will undergo an MRI tomorrow.
Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 5-7 with 2 RBIs and 3 runs scored against the Cubs. This was Braun's 2nd career 5-hit game. Turning point? Let's hope so.
Batting 5th, Ike Davis was 1-3 with 1 BB against the Braves.
Batting 7th, Danny Valencia was 0-4 against the Rays.
