Kevin Youkilis' star rising in Chicago

Kevin Youkilis could probably get elected mayor of Chicago right now.
At least, on the South Side of the Windy City.
Youkilis rounds bases after home run Thursday.
The former Boston Red Sox third baseman cracked a solo home run Thursday to lift the White Sox to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Texas Rangers and a three-game sweep of the back-to-back American League champions.
On Wednesday, Youkilis had the winning hit in the bottom of the 10th inning as Chicago beat the Rangers 5-4.
In his first 10 games with the White Sox, Youkilis hit .308 with 10 RBI.
He appears to have solved what had been a glaring problem at third base for the White Sox.
His winning hits the last two days helped Chicago stay 4 1/2 games ahead of the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central Division.
