Jones Has 2 RBIs in Orioles’ 4-1 Win over Twins
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Adam Jones drove in two runs with a home run and double and Mike Wright pitched five scoreless innings as a Baltimore Orioles split-squad beat the Minnesota Twins 4-1 on Thursday night.
Jones homered leading off the fourth and doubled to drive in Manny Machado in the sixth. Mark Trumbo's single in the sixth drove in the third run.
Wright became the first Orioles starter to pitch five innings. He didn't allow a run and gave up four hits, striking out two and walking none.
Taylor Rogers started for Minnesota and threw two scoreless innings. Rogers, who has a chance to make the Twins as a set-up man, was helped out in the first when center fielder Max Kepler made two outstanding catches on balls hit by Machado and Trumbo.
Baltimore lost the afternoon portion of the split-squad at Boston 9-5.
