Banuelos (2-1) retired his first eight batters before Christian Vazquez opened Boston’s two-out rally with a single. Xander Bogaerts, Michael Chavis and Eduardo Nunez homered, Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez had RBI doubles, and Vazquez capped the streak with another single before White Sox Manager Rick Renteria pulled Banuelos with a 9-1 deficit.

Carson Fulmer replaced Banuelos and interrupted the hit parade by walking Andrew Benintendi. Betts flew out to right to end the inning after 14 batters.

The Colorado Rockies had a record 11 straight hits during a 17-2 win over the Chicago Cubs at Coors Field on July 30, 2010.

Chavis added another solo shot in the fifth for his first multihomer game and finished with four hits and three RBI. Vazquez also had four hits and Benintendi had three as the Red Sox rolled to their fifth win in their last six games.

All of the Red Sox starters except Vazquez had at least one RBI.


Eduardo Rodriguez (3-2) worked six innings and scattered six hits. Jose Abreu’s RBI single accounted for the only run against the lefty, who fanned six.

Abreu added a solo shot off Tyler Thornburg in the eighth. In his last 13 games, the White Sox slugger his batting .426 with four homers and 22 RBI.

The Red Sox added five runs in the fourth off Fulmer, on three hits, two walks and two errors. Benintendi capped that rally with an RBI double.


The Red Sox have scored 47 runs in Rodriguez’s last five starts and won them all.


Red Sox: Nunez returned after a rehab assignment (back sprain) with Triple-A Pawtucket and started at second base. Infielder Tzu-Wei Lin was placed on the 10-day IL because of a left knee sprain. Lin got hurt when he hooked his left foot awkwardly on second base Friday as he was caught stealing.
