BOSTON – Chris Young hit two homers, including a tiebreaking three-run shot after the batter in front was walked intentionally, to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 6-3 win over the White Sox on Sunday.

Young added an RBI double and had a solo homer off starter Mike Pelfrey to help the AL East-leading Red Sox complete a four-game sweep of the White Sox, who lost their sixth consecutive game and 23rd in their past 27.

Young improved to 10 for 24 in his career against Pelfrey (3-10), who gave up six runs and eight hits in 52/3 innings. He’s 0-5 with a 7.78 ERA in his past eight starts.

The White Sox opened the second with four straight hits to take a 3-2 edge. Yolmer Sanchez and Tim Anderson had consecutive RBI singles before Alen Hanson’s sacrifice fly.

Young’s double tied it at 3.
