Team game

Youk's hitting streak ended, but it did so for the good of the team:
'You don't know me if you're asking me that question,' said Youkilis. 'I don't swing at balls. That's not a pitch I can hit on 3-1. I'm looking fastball and he threw a slider. I'm not going to chase a pitch on 3-1.'
Note to Mike Lowell: In future, to avoid accusations of dirty play, you should try one of the following classy, big-league plays:
  • slapping the ball out of Cano's glove
  • yelling 'Mine!' (or 'Hah!' or 'I got it!') as he tries to make the play
