HRs by Jones, Davis help Orioles top Blue Jays 5-2
Thursday, April 26, 2012
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Adam Jones led off the eighth inning with a tiebreaking homer and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 on Thursday night, completing a three-game sweep with their fourth straight victory.
Jones ripped the first pitch from Casey Janssen (1-1) into the first row of the left-field stands, barely eluding the leap of Eric Thames. It was his sixth homer of the season.
Darren Oliver replaced Janssen after Jones' home run and allowed Matt Wieters' single before Chris Davis hit a two-run homer to right-center.
Darren O'Day (2-0) pitched two perfect innings in relief of Brian Matusz, who might have saved his spot in the rotation with a strong outing. Luis Ayala worked the ninth for his first save.
