Video: Kevin Youkilis and Rick Porcello Fight After Youk Charges the Mound
Man, this was about as good of a fight as we’ve had in baseball since Jose Offerman decided to charge the mound toting his bat like it were a mace. Check out this must-see video of Kevin Youkilis charging the mound on Rick Porcello. Youk comes in with a strong charge but it seemed like Porcello got the upper edge:
If you’re asking for my assessment of the situation, it’s Youk who was in the wrong and got what he deserved. By my count, three Tigers had been plunked (Cabrera twice, Inge once) to only one Red Sox player (Youk) by the time Youk charged after getting hit a second time. That’s 3-2 with the Tigers on the losing end. If anyone should have gone, it was Miggy back in the first when he got dosed for the second time in two days. But he held back while Youk couldn’t. Speaking of which, that was a sweet body slam by Porcello. Not bad for a youngster.
