Then, it was Xander Bogaerts and Michael Chavis getting in on the action with back-to-back home runs.

But wait, there's more.

Steve Pearce kept the rally going with an RBI single and Eduardo Nuñez drove him in with a two-run home run in his return from the injured list.

After Nuñez's homer, the White Sox finally came to their senses and replaced White Sox starter Manny Bañuelos.

14 Red Sox batters went to the plate in the third inning, and all 10 hits came with two outs.
