BOSTON — Adam Eaton opened the game with a home run, Jose Quintana pitched 6 1-3 solid innings and the Chicago White Sox beat the Boston Red Sox 9-2 on Wednesday night for their seventh straight win.

Eaton and Melky Cabrera both had three hits, including RBI singles. Alexei Ramirez hit a solo homer for the White Sox, who built a 6-0 lead and chased Boston starter Rick Porcello in the third inning.

Mike Napoli homered and drove in two runs for the Red Sox, who have lost 12 of 14.

Quintana (6-9) allowed two runs and six hits, striking out three and walking one. He gave up Napoli’s homer into the Green Monster seats in the seventh.

Porcello (5-11) was tagged for six runs and seven hits in two-plus innings, the second time in five starts he’s lasted just two innings. He gave up seven runs in a loss at Toronto on July 1.

For the third straight game, the White Sox scored in the first inning, grabbing a 2-0 lead. Eaton hit his homer down the right-field line and Cabrera scored when second baseman Brock Holt missed a relay throw from the outfield – with the ball going under his glove and rolling behind him for an error.

They added three runs in the second. Eaton and Cabrera had RBI singles before Porcello hit Adam LaRoche with a pitch with the bases loaded, making it 5-0.

The White Sox scored nine combined runs in the first inning of the opening two games.

Chicago chased Porcello by opening the third with three consecutive hits. Ramirez homered into the first row of Monster seats, Carlos Sanchez doubled and Tyler Flowers singled. Craig Breslow relieved and left the bases loaded.

Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval left the game because he was dehydrated

Outfielder Mookie Betts was placed on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion, a day after tumbling backward over the bullpen wall when he made a catch but had the ball fall out of his glove for an overturned, replay-reviewed homer when he landed.

VIVA DOMINICANA NIGHT

A night after retiring newly inducted Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez’s uniform number 45, the Red Sox held a ceremony retiring it again in Spanish. Fans were given Dominican flags and postcard replicas of his Hall of Fame plaque with the words in Spanish. The Red Sox played congratulatory messages from Dominican players around the majors, including Albert Pujols of the Los Angeles Angels.
