CHICAGO — The Red Sox knew it was going to be a great night when Kiké Hernández belted Dylan Cease’s first pitch of the game for a leadoff home run. Then, his teammates followed suit en route to a 16-3 win against the White Sox on Tuesday night at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Boston’s offense erupted for a season-high 16 runs, 19 hits and nine extra-base hits. But more importantly, all nine hitters contributed to the effort.

Hernández’s leadoff home run — hit off the bat at 112 mph — led to an all-out run party. Trevor Story homered as well in the inning on a three-run blast to give him 16 RBIs in the past five games. Rafael Devers and Christian Vázquez also went deep to give Boston a season-high four home runs in one game.

All nine starters for the Red Sox had a hit, and the only batter in the lineup who didn’t notch an RBI was Xander Bogaerts. J.D. Martinez went 4-for-5 with three runs scored to raise his average from .349 to an American League-best .366.

With another dominating offensive performance, the Red Sox continue to hit the ball better than any team. Since May 10, they have the most runs per game (7.31).
