It was like old times against the Yankees for Kevin Youkilis: he was booed vigorously and hit with a pitch that had the back story of a retaliatory action.

The White Sox third baseman was hit in his left elbow by Hideki Kuroda in the fifth, an inning after Derek Jeter was plunked by Jake Peavy. It represented the 15th time Youkilis has been hit by the Yankees, the most in his career against any team.

Still, the man who was traded from Boston last week wasn't making any accusations following Chicago's 4-0 loss at the Stadium.

"It's something you have to ask the Yankees, I don't know," he said. "I just got hit by a pitch and that's it."
