In one of the tightest races in All-star game history, Boston Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis has moved back in front of the Yankees' Mark Teixeira with two days left in AL balloting for starters for the game in St. Louis on July 14.
Youkilis had 1,915,303 votes in total released Tuesday to Teixeira's 1,875,256. Last week, Teixeira was ahead by 35,632 ballots.
The two have battled back and forth since voting began, and it should be a race to the finish line. In the end I have a feeling Teixeira will pull it out.
Here is a look at how the two compare.
|2009 - Kevin Youkilis||62||216||46||67||18||1||12||42||43||60||4||1||.310||.438||.569|
|2009 - Mark Teixeira||71||275||50||76||22||0||20||60||44||47||1||0||.276||.387||.575|
