Ross Hits 2 3-run HRs in Boston's 10-1 Rout
BOSTON (AP) -- Cody Ross hit three-run homers in consecutive innings and Felix Doubront pitched six solid innings, carrying the Boston Red Sox to a 10-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.

Adrian Gonzalez added a solo homer and drove in four runs, and Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits for Boston.

Paul Konerko had an RBI single and walked twice for the White Sox, who lost for the fourth time in 12 games.

The Red Sox have won two of three in the four-game series, which concludes Thursday night.

The 24-year old Doubront (10-4) joined Jon Lester (also 24 in 2008) as the only two Red Sox to have double-digit wins in a season at 24 or younger since Roger Clemens in 1987. Clemens was 20-9 at 24 and Lester won 16 four seasons ago.
