Red Sox hand White Sox team-record 14th straight loss

red sox

Ceddanne Rafaela had four hits and drove in four runs Thursday as the visiting Boston Red Sox handed the Chicago White Sox their 14th consecutive defeat, 14-2.

Tanner Houck (6-5) limited Chicago to two runs on three hits in seven innings. He struck out nine.

Jarren Duran, Enmanuel Valdez and Jamie Westbrook each homered for Boston. Duran, who had four hits in the victory, led off the game with a homer against Chicago’s Jake Woodford, and Valdez hit a three-run home run against Woodford (0-2) in the fourth.

Westbrook’s home run was the first of his major league career and came one day after he collected his first major league hit. It was a pinch-hit homer against Jared Shuster in the seventh.

Chicago’s 14 straight losses is a franchise record for consecutive losses in a season.

Dominic Smith and Rob Refsnyder each had three hits for the Red Sox, who had a season-high 24 hits. Boston received two hits from Tyler O’Neill, Connor Wong and David Hamilton.

Andrew Vaughn hit a solo home run for the White Sox. It was his fifth home run of the season.

Chicago’s Zach DeLoach collected his first major league hit in the loss. DeLoach drove in Lenyn Sosa with a double in the sixth.

The Red Sox led 3-0 after Duran’s home run and a two-run single by Rafaela in the second inning, and the home run from Valdez extended Boston’s lead to 6-0 in the fourth. Wong’s single later in the fourth drove in O’Neill to make it a 7-0 game.

Boston received RBI singles from Smith, Wong and Rafaela in the sixth before Duran’s sacrifice fly later in the inning drove in Wong and pushed Boston’s lead to 11-0.

After DeLoach delivered an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth, Westbrook homered to make it a 12-1 game. The Red Sox were up 13-1 after Rafaela’s fourth hit drove in Wong in the seventh.

Vaughn’s solo home run came in the bottom of the seventh before Refsnyder scored on Smith’s groundout in the eighth to cap the scoring.
