CHICAGO, June 30 (UPI) -- Justin Masterson hurled his third shutout of the season Sunday and Cleveland gained a tie for first place with a 4-0 whitewash of the Chicago White Sox.

Masterson (10-6) dominated Chicago, scattering six hits and issuing just one walk as the Indians completed their first four-game series sweep of the White Sox since 1948, the year of the Tribe's last World Series title.

The right-hander struck out eight while placing 73 of his 112 pitches for strikes.

Drew Stubbs, Ryan Raburn, Carlos Santana and Lonnie Chisenhall each knocked in a run for Cleveland, which pulled into a tie with Detroit atop the American League Central with the sweep.

Yan Gomes supplied three hits for the Indians.

Chisox starter Chris Sale (5-7) was tagged with the loss, surrendering three runs on seven hits over eight frames. He struck out 10.

Reeling Chicago fell for the 23rd time in 31 games.
