CHICAGO (AP) — The Boston Red Sox strung together 10 straight hits against White Sox left-hander Manny Bañuelos, ending one hit shy of the major league record during a nine-run third inning in a 15-2 rout of Chicago on Saturday night.

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

Carson Fulmer replaced Bañuelos 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 major league-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 RBIs. Vázquez 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 Vázquez 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 RBIs.

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

RABID RUN SUPPORT

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

FLYING FAN

A male fan in his 20s hopped into the outfield in the top of the fifth. He ran toward the infield from center field smiling with his arms extended before being tackled by four security guards.

WAIVER CLAIM

The Red Sox claimed 1B Joey Curletta off waivers from Seattle on Saturday and assigned him to Double-A Portland.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Red Sox: INF Núñez returned after a rehab assignment (mid-back sprain) with Triple-A Pawtucket and started at second base. ... INF Tzu-Wei Lin was placed on the 10-day IL with a left knee sprain. Lin got hurt when he hooked his left foot awkwardly on second base Friday as he was caught stealing. ... 2B Dustin Pedroia (left knee irritation) went 3 for 4 on Saturday with Double-A Portland as he continued his rehab assignment.

White Sox: Renteria had no update on LHP Carlos Rodón (left elbow inflammation), who was placed on 10-day IL on Thursday.

UP NEXT: Boston RHP Rick Porcello (2-3, 5.52) will face Chicago RHP Dylan Covey (0-1, 6.75) in the finale of the four-game series. Porcello has won his last two starts, allowing three runs and striking out 13 over 14 innings. Covey will make his first start since being recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on April 29.
