Adam Engel hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and the Chicago White Sox rolled into the All-Star break Sunday with a 7-5 victory over Baltimore to complete a season sweep of the Orioles.

 

Andrew Vaughn homered twice for the White Sox, who have won five in a row and 10 of 13 overall. Chicago leads the AL Central by eight games over Cleveland.

 

The White Sox went 7-0 against Baltimore this season. It is the first time in franchise history Chicago has swept a season series of at least seven games against any team, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

 

Pinch-hitter Trey Mancini's two-out, two-run homer in the Orioles ninth made it 4-all. He'll take part in the All-Star Home Run Derby on Monday night at Coors Field in Denver.

 

Chicago swept a series at Camden Yards for the first time since 2005.

 

Chicago returns home after the All-Star break on Friday for a three-game series against the Astros. The White Sox suffered a four-game sweep at Houston last month.
