Third baseman Kevin Youkilis is making his debut for the Chicago White Sox on Monday night vs. the Minnesota Twins, but just like the rest of his new teammates, Youkilis hasn't been able to find any success yet against Twins starter Francisco Liriano. Youkilis is 0-for-3 hitting the two-hole for Chicago as the South Siders trail the Twins 3-0 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning at Target Field.
Minnesota jumped out to an early lead when star catcher Joe Mauer hit a sacrifice fly to right field to score Denard Span. The Twins scored twice in the second thanks to RBI singles from shortstop Brian Dozier and second baseman Jamey Carroll.
