According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Kevin Youkilis is the first player since Ken "Hawk" Harrelson in 1969 to homer at Fenway Park after playing for the Red Sox earlier in the season. Harrelson, the iconic White Sox television play-by-play man, homered for Cleveland on Sept. 16, 1969, at Boston after playing 10 games for the Red Sox earlier that season.
Youkilis is 5-for-12 with two doubles, a homer, three RBIs and four runs scored in his first three career games against the Red Sox.
John Danks didn't throw on Wednesday but reported that he felt no pain in his previously sore left shoulder. The left-hander, who has been on the disabled list retroactive to May 20, plans to throw again Thursday from possibly a distance greater than the 90 feet he played catch from Monday.
Jesse Crain will throw another simulated game Thursday, after successfully testing his right shoulder in the same manner Tuesday. Crain hopes to return for the White Sox by the home series against the Twins beginning Monday.
The White Sox game at Baltimore on Aug. 29 will now be televised by WGN-TV. The game time remains at 6:05 p.m. CT.
