Baltimore gets 3-2 win over Astros behind homer from Jones

HOUSTON (AP) - Adam Jones had three hits, including a solo homer in the eighth inning that lifted the Baltimore Orioles to a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Thursday.

Jones has five hits in his last two games following a 0-for-12 slump.

With the score 2-2 in the eighth inning and two outs, Jones drove a pitch from Chad Qualls (1-3) into the Crawford Boxes in left field.

Wei-Yin Chen yielded two runs and five hits in 6 1/3 innings with a season-high nine strikeouts. Darren O'Day (2-0) struck out two in one inning and lowered his ERA to 0.89, and Zach Britton got four outs for his 14th save in 15 chances, stopping Baltimore's five-game losing streak.

Hank Conger had a home run and a double for the Astros, who at an AL-best 34-21 are off to the best start in franchise history.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was ejected in the second inning by umpire Brian Gorman after going to home plate, gesturing and yelling at him. His ejection came after Ryan Flaherty struck out after two called strikes.
