Simply grand: Youk connects on 1,000th career hit
KANSAS CITY -- Third baseman Kevin Youkilis did most of his offensive work with the Red Sox, but his 1,000th career hit came with the White Sox.

Youkilis reached that milestone with an eighth-inning single off Royals left-hander Tim Collins on Saturday in the White Sox 9-4 loss. The hit, a liner to left, came just before Adam Dunn reached his own milestone with the 400th homer of his career.

Youkilis has started 44 of 47 games since joining the White Sox.
