Kevin Youkilis charged the mound in last nights Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers game. Read more about the story, plus browse pictures and watch the Youkilis fight video here.
Kevin Youkilis rushed the mound after pitcher Rick Porcello “accidently” hit him with a pitch. The fight looked somewhere in between MMA and WWE with Youkilis employing a judo type throw to put Porcello on the ground.
The benches cleared and both teams wisely intervened before any real punches, kicks, or elbows were thrown; kind of like UFC Refs in recent fights. Needless to say both Porcello and Youkilis were ejected from the game.
Repercussions for the fight are still up in the air. When Terry Francona was asked about his predictions on what type of suspension YouK will receive he replied:
“I don’t have answer for that. That’s for you and everybody else to debate.”
Mike Lowell smacked a single shot homer in the third inning to break a 3-3 tie, and then in the fifth he added a two-run shot brining the score to 6-3. Five runs, five hits, three strikeouts, and four walks in five innings is how Chris Lambert (0-1) faired after entering the game in the 2nd inning.
