Kevin Youkilis Gets Hit By Pitch, Charges At And Gets Taken Down By Rick Porcello: Video



Tonight’s game between the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers got ugly early on after Kevin Youkilis took offense to a hit-by-pitch and immediately charged after Rick Porcello on the mound.

Porcello initially backed away from the crazed Youkilis, who threw his batting helmet at the pitcher, but once he realized he wasn’t going to be able to avoid a confrontation, Porcello dropped Youkilis to the ground. Both teams then cleared the benches, and both players were ejected. Youkilis will face a certain suspension, but Porcello was only acting in self-defense and should not be suspended, unless the teams had been warned not to hit anyone at that point and it is deemed intentional.

Kevin Youkilis is just lucky that he isn’t playing baseball in any other era. If he and his Red Sox teammates can’t take inside pitches and the occasional plunking, perhaps they should go take up golf.

    Ok obviously you all cant get that its nearing the end of the season these ass pitchers are paid millions….and they cant focus on hitting a glove, instead they hit a grown man…I say Youkilis had it right(the poor guys been hit 11 times this season…he’s taken enough-and this is nearing the end)…maybe if Porocello cant aim for the glove he should take up sequenized swimming…cuz then that way all he can focus on is holding his breath!
