GAME SUMMARY: Adam Jones homered and tripled and in his first game in nearly 13 months, Matt Wieters had two RBIs to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.
Chris Tillman broke a six-game losing streak, allowing two runs in 6 1/3 innings. Tillman (3-7) had not won since Apr. 18.
Zach Britton pitched the ninth for his 15th save.
The Orioles (25-29), who had lost five straight, won their second straight.
Shawn Marcum (2-1) took the loss for Cleveland (26-28).
THE GOOD: Tillman was clearly happy to be working with Wieters again, and the result was a win.
THE BAD: Lately the Orioles have been making baserunning gaffes. It was the Indians’ turn in the sixth. With the tying run on, David Murphy tried to advance to third on a ground ball to short. He was thrown out.
THE UGLY: David Lough was caught stealing in the fifth inning. In his Orioles career, he has stolen nine bases and been caught nine times.
NOTABLE: Jones has homered in consecutive games for the second time this season. He homered in three straight: Apr. 12-14.
DIZZYING DAY: Besides welcoming back Wieters and seeing Brian Matusz’s suspension begin, the Orioles optioned Steve Clevenger and Mike Wright to Norfolk. They added left-hander Cesar Cabral and infielder Rey Navarro and designated Everth Cabrera for assignment.
ON THE ROAD: Matusz headed to Sarasota to work out during his eight-game suspension. He’s eligible to return on June 14.
COMING BACK: J.J. Hardy started for the first time since Sunday and went 1-for-4.
COMING UP: Ubaldo Jimenez (3-3, 3.12) faces Danny Salazar (5-1, 3.79) at 4:05 p.m. on Saturday.
