Youkilis extended his hitting streak to 21 games when he doubled in the first, then homered in the seventh. An impressive component of Youkilis's streak from the Globe's Gordon Edes: He has nine straight multihit games (19 for 40, .475). In the last 50 years, only one Sox player, Jim Rice, has had as many consecutive multiple-hit games. Rice had nine in 1978.
