       BOSTON (AP) – Wei-Yin Chen pitched perfect ball into the sixth inning, Adam Jones helped provide an early cushion and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 10-6 Wednesday for a three-game sweep.

        The Orioles took an 8-0 lead in the fifth and maintained their double-digit lead atop the AL East.

        Caleb Joseph homered and drove in three runs and Ryan Flaherty got a career-high four hits as Baltimore won for the 11th time in 14 games.

        Chen (15-4) retired the first 16 batters before Dan Butler doubled off the Green Monster for his first major league hit. Chen gave up one run and three hits in seven innings, striking out four without a walk.

        Boston scored five runs in the ninth. Darren O’Day got the last out with two runners on for his third save.

        Brandon Workman (1-9) lost his ninth straight decision since winning at Baltimore on June 10.
