BALTIMORE (AP) – Adam Jones homered and drove in two runs to back an effective pitching performance by Brad Bergesen and lead the Baltimore Orioles over the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Saturday night.
Jones hit a solo shot in the fourth inning and put Baltimore ahead 3-2 in the fifth with a sacrifice fly. He has four homers and nine RBIs in his last eight games.
J.J. Hardy had three singles as part of a 13-hit attack that enabled the Orioles to win for only the fifth time in 22 games. Baltimore got at least one hit in every inning except the eighth but was victimized by four double plays.
Bergesen (2-6) allowed two runs, six hits and two walks in six innings to earn his first win since May 14. He’s 2-0 lifetime against the Angels and 15-23 against everyone else.
