CHICAGO (AP) — Dylan Covey tossed seven strong innings for his first major league win, Yoan Moncada and Adam Engel each hit three-run homers and the Chicago White Sox pounded the Baltimore Orioles 11-1 on Wednesday night.

Jose Rondon added his first major league homer, a two-run shot in the seventh, as last-place Chicago rolled to its fifth win in seven games.

Covey (1-1) allowed one run on six hits and struck out eight in his 20th game and 14th start — and longest outing — in the majors. Baltimore, last in the AL East, has lost four of five overall and is 5-21 on the road.

Moncada’s shot to center in a four-run third inning put the White Sox ahead for good after Jace Peterson singled in Baltimore’s lone run in the second. Moncada’s seventh homer was his first since April 26, a stretch that included time on the disabled list with left hamstring tightness.

Engel, who entered hitting .183, added three singles and matched a career high with four hits. His drive to left in the fifth was his first homer since last September.

Alex Cobb (1-6) lasted just 3 2/3 innings, his shortest outing since April 19. The right-hander allowed six runs on eight hits.

Covey was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday to take Carson Fulmer’s spot the in rotation after Fulmer was assigned to the farm club.

Covey made one start with Chicago earlier this season, losing on April 28 at Kansas City. The 26-year-old righty was 0-7 with a 7.71 ERA in 12 starts and six relief appearances in 2017.

Covey looked shaky only in the second, when Baltimore used two singles and a walk to take a 1-0 lead.

In the third, Tim Anderson walked and Engel singled with one out before Moncada connected on a 1-2 pitch from Cobb.

Chicago tacked on two more runs in the fourth on RBI singles by Yolmer Sanchez and Jose Abreu.

Engel’s shot with two outs in the in the fifth off Pedro Araujo made it 9-1. Rondon’s drive complete the scoring.
