Youkilis was lifted for a pinch-runner after hitting a triple in the seventh inning. He was greeted with a hug from Nick Punto, who pinch-ran for him, and many of his teammates on the top step of the dugout.
The burley infielder, in his ninth season with the Red Sox, took his helmet off and waved to the crowd, blew a kiss and was urged to come out for a curtain call by his teammates before heading down the steps. He was given a lengthy standing ovation and the fans chanted “Yook.”
Aaron Cook (1-1), gave up three runs _ two earned _ six hits and didn’t walk or strike out anyone in five innings.
TWINS 4, REDS 3
CINCINNATI (AP) _ Josh Willingham hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning off shaky Cincinnati closer Aroldis Chapman, rallying Minnesota over the Reds.
Minnesota left-hander Scott Diamond (6-3) allowed three runs and eight hits in eight innings.
RANGERS 4, ROCKIES 2
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ Matt Harrison worked five scoreless innings for his 10th victory, Leonys Martin had a pair of extra-base hits for his first three RBIs in the majors and the Texas Rangers beat Colorado.
Martin, the Cuban defector who signed with the Rangers last year, had an RBI double in the second and a two-run triple an inning later.
Harrison (10-3) won his sixth consecutive decision. His outing was cut short because of tightness in his lower back that caused soreness in his left hip.
