Sunday, April 13th, 2008: Fireworks exploded with regularity in the Marlins-Astros game, but it wasn't a match that set them off -- it was the bat of Kevin Youkilis. He belted 3 home runs in an awesome display of sheer power.

In the 14-2 Florida victory Youkilis stunned the Astros pitching staff for 3 hits in 4 at-bats and knocked in 7 runs.

After the game, Youkilis said simply, "I saw everything they threw at me. Hitting was a piece of cake today... with lots of extra icing on it."

Kevin Youkilis hit a three-run home run off Seth Etherton in the 1st, struck out in the 3rd, hit a solo-shot off Seth Etherton in the 5th, walked in the 6th and hit a three-run home run off Tommy Phelps in the 8th.

For the year Youkilis has hit at a .349 clip with 10 RBIs, 4 home runs and 9 runs scored.
