Almost lost in the insanity of last night's 19-17 win was the unplanned exit of Mike Lowell. He left after striking out in the 7th due to a strained right oblique. With all the hip problems Lowell's had this season, he'll more than likely be put on the 15 day DL.
The Red Sox will shift Youkilis over to third base, and put Sean Casey in at first. This isn't much of a dropoff. Casey's having a good season, hitting .353, with a .412 OBP in 150 at-bats.
Also on the injury front, Julio Lugo took groundballs the other day. I think I speak for everyone in Red Sox Nation when I say, "Take your time, Julio."
