Jones' four hits help Orioles take two of three

GAME SUMMARY: Adam Jones capped a four-hit day with a two-run single in the seventh inning, leading the Orioles to a 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.

The Orioles (12-11) won two of three this weekend in this hastily arranged series relocated because of unrest in Baltimore.

Tampa Bay (13-12) led 2-0 in the sixth. Rey Navarro’s RBI single scored one run, and in the seventh, Jimmy Paredes doubled tied the score. Jones’ single scored Manny Machado and Paredes.

Tommy Hunter (1-1) pitched the seventh for the win. Zach Britton recorded the game’s last four outs for his fifth save.

Steve Geltz (1-1) was the loser.

THE GOOD: Wei-Yin Chen continued the streak of quality starts. He allowed two runs in six innings.

THE BAD: The Orioles got just two hits in five inning off Nathan Karns. In his previous two starts against the Orioles, he allowed nine runs in 10 1/3 innings.

THE UGLY: After playing their first errorless game in their last six on Saturday, Everth Cabrera made an error in the eighth inning.

HITTING: The four hits give Jones a .402 average. It’s his third four-hit day this season, which equals a career high.

NOTABLE: This was the first time the Orioles won when they didn’t score first in the game.

CROWDED: Sunday’s attendance was 16,652. The three “home” games drew 39,386, far less than they would have normally attracted in Baltimore, but many more than there originally forecast.

COMING UP: The Orioles have Monday off. They’ll fly home for a day, and take the train up to New York where they begin six games with the Mets and Yankees. On Tuesday, Bud Norris (1-2, 12.18) faces Bartolo Colon 4-1, 3.31).
