Road Runners

The Red Sox's romp through Chicago's pitching staff (11-3, 10-1, 14-2, 11-1) was the first time in major league history that a road team has swept a four-game series with 10 or more runs scored in each game.

Also, it has been 85 years since an American League team had scored 10+ in each game of a four-game series (the other three times: St. Louis Browns 1920, St. Louis Browns 1922, Colorado Rockies 1996).

Here are the previous times the Red Sox have scored in double figures for four consecutive games (with a little bonus from 1950).
June 14, 1901: Red Sox 16, Tigers 7
June 15, 1901: Red Sox 12, Tigers 4
June 17, 1901: Red Sox 11, Tigers 1
June 17, 1901: Red Sox 10, Tigers 1

June 20, 1912: Red Sox 15, Yankees 8
June 21, 1912: Red Sox 11, Yankees 3
June 22, 1912: Red Sox 13, Yankees 2
June 22, 1912: Red Sox 10, Yankees 3

June 2, 1950: Red Sox 11, Cleveland 5
June 3, 1950: Red Sox 11, Cleveland 9
June 4, 1950: Red Sox 17, White Sox 7
June 5, 1950: Red Sox 12, White Sox 0
June 6, 1950: White Sox 8, Red Sox 4
June 7, 1950: Red Sox 20, Browns 4
June 8, 1950: Red Sox 29, Browns 4
P.S. The Red Sox-Yankees 1912 series was five games; Boston won the opener 5-2. After sweeping that five-game series in New York, the Red Sox split four games with Washington before winning five of six games from the Yankees at Fenway: June 28 to July 2, 1912.

In 14 days, Boston went 10-1 against the Yankees, outscoring them 95-42!
