The powerless Boston Red Sox are on a power surge.

They rank last in the American League with 116 homers. But they are tied for third in the majors for home runs 11 during August.

Chris Young belted two home runs and Eduardo Nunez added another to help the Red Sox win 6 3 over the Hanley Ramirez Jersey White Sox here at Fenway Park on Sunday.

Boston swept its four game series against Chicago and has won six straight games.

Home runs in August

1. Cubs 13
2. Orioles 12
3. Red Sox 11
3. Dodgers 11
3. Rangers 11
6. Astros 10

Red Sox month by month home run totals

April 15 homers 24 games.
May 33 homers, 28 games.
June 32 homers, 28 games.
July 25 homers, 27 games.
August 11 homers, 5 games.

How does manager John Farrell explain this sudden turnaround?

We re getting pitches on the plate and not missing them, he said. Since Eduardo has come here, he s been part of that surge. ... We talked about Mitch Moreland getting back on track. He s been in the mix here with the home runs as well. So we re in a pretty good place right now. And I think it s pretty apparent when we do hit a couple inside of a game , it s pretty outstanding when you look at the win/loss record , particularly the way our pitchers have thrown the baseball.
Since the Red Sox acquired Nunez, the team has belted 14 homers in nine games. Nunez has four of them.

Rafael Devers the 20 year old phenom third baseman has quickly become a power threat in the middle of the order. He has three homers and two doubles in his first 11 major league games. He already has taken over as the club s No. 5 hitter.
Yes, the record is significantly better when the Red Sox hit the long ball. Boston has hit multiple homers in each of its past five games, extending its longest such streak of this season. The Red Sox are 27 4 .871 winning percentage this season when hitting multiple homers in a game.

The Sox are 41 10 .804 winning percentage in the 51 games Jackie Bradley Jr. has homered during his career.

The Red Sox have claimed to be a team built around hitting doubles, but they understand the importance of home runs and how they can swing the outcome of a game.

The Red Sox trailed Toronto 7 3 in the seventh inning at Fenway on July 20 when Dustin Pedroia belted a three run homer that made it 7 6. Boston was right back in the game with one swing of the bat.

The Sox have lacked those type of big hits to get back in games this year.

They need more of them. They have had plenty of them the past week and that s why they are winning.
