CHICAGO — Trevor Story is baseball’s hottest hitter and there seems to be no stopping him.
His all-around performance was on display once again in the Red Sox’s 16-7 win against the White Sox on Thursday night at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Story started his night by driving in a run in the first inning on an RBI single. One inning later, he belted a three-run shot off Dallas Keuchel to give Boston a 6-0 lead. The blast was Story’s seventh homer in the past seven games and eighth over his last 10.
Those four RBIs also extended his month’s total to 32, which is tied for seventh most all-time in May. He needs just 10 RBIs over the next five days — six games — to break Ted Williams’ record for most RBIs in the month of May (41).
Story finished Thursday’s game going 2-for-4 with one home run, four RBIs, one walk and one stolen base. The 29-year-old continues to see the ball well, batting .333 (13-for-39) over his last 10 games, with eight home runs, 22 RBIs, six walks and three stolen bases.
