CHICAGO -- The Boston Red Sox started slowly at the plate, but were nearly unstoppable once they started connecting.
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 each 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.
"We were one pitch away from not scoring in the inning," Boston manager Alex Cora said. "We know we're good offensively. It just a matter of getting that big hit.
"It wasn't luck. They were barreling balls the whole inning and it was good."
There were no bloops in Boston's run. All 10 hits were well-struck and most were line shots.
"After the first time around, I think guys had a better feel of (Banuelos') stuff and knew what to expect and put some good swings on it," Benintendi said.
Banuelos just lost it after not getting Vazquez to close out the third.
"I was commanding the ball real well," Banuelos said. "The third inning, the first two outs were great, but I didn't get the chance to get the third out. Just one of those days where things turn over like that quick."
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.
"I don't think I've ever, ever had an inning like that in pro ball," said Chavis, a rookie who was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket on April 20. "You see everybody getting hits and everybody's like, `Let me hop on and let me get a little bit of that."
All of the Red Sox starters except Vazquez had at least one RBI.
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 more runs in the fourth off Fulmer, on three hits, two walks and two errors. Benintendi capped that rally with an RBI double.
RHP Fulmer, along with RHP Jose Ruiz, were optioned to Triple-A Charlotte after the game. In eight games with the White Sox, Fulmer was 1-1 with a 6.97 ERA
RABID RUN SUPPORT
The Red Sox have scored 47 runs in Rodriguez's past five starts and won them all.
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.
The Red Sox claimed 1B Joey Curletta off waivers from Seattle on Saturday and assigned him to Double-A Portland.
Red Sox: INF Nunez 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 Rodon (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.
