TORONTO (AP)-Boston Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis was listed as day-to-day after getting hit by a pitch above the left knee Tuesday night.
Youkilis went 3-for-3 with a home run before leaving in the sixth inning of a 9-2 win over Toronto.
``It's a question mark whether it was intentional or unintentional,'' Youkilis said. ``It gets old after a while, getting hit, but what are you going to do?''
Youkilis was nicked in the same area by Minnesota's Glen Perkins on Sunday and has been hit five times already this season.
``There's going to be some tightness,'' Youkilis said. ``Hopefully I'll get through it and be all right.''
Youkilis fell to the ground after being hit by Casey Janssen. Trainer Paul Lessard and manager Terry Francona came out to check on Youkilis, who limped off the field without assistance. He was replaced by Eric Hinske.
``He's going to be pretty sore,'' Francona said. ``We'll check tomorrow morning.''
Youkilis is batting .306 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 29 games this season.
