There were two outs in the top of the third inning—with no Carmine Hosers occupying any bases. Then, Boston smacked out ten consecutive hits—scoring nine times in an eventual 15-2 drubbing of the White Sox. The offensive onslaught against former Evil One Manny Banuelos started with an innocent single by Christian Vazquez—then, the deluge. Boston homered three times in the inning—off the bats of Xander Bogaerts, Michael Chavis and Eduardo Nunez. Later in the game rookie phenom Chavis went yard again—his 6th in 14 MLB games. Both Chavis and Vazquez collected four hits apieceEduardo Rodriguez was the beneficiary of all this largesse—going six strong innings and yielding just one earned run. The win puts Boston at just two games under .500 (16-18)—and 5.5 games off the division lead. After today's finale in The Windy City, the Red Sox head to Baltimore for three games against the ridiculously pathetic Orioles.
