BALTIMORE — Adam Jones hit a pair of home runs, Jonathan Schoop added a three-run shot and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Oakland Athletics 7-3 on Monday night.

Wade Miley (7-10) held the A’s to two runs on five hits and four walks over six-plus innings to pick up his first win at Camden Yards since June 17. The left-hander is 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA against Oakland this season.

Jones tied a career high with four hits and is one home run shy of reaching 25 for the seventh consecutive season. Zach Britton got the final out with two runners on for his 11th save this season and his 60th in a row.

Baltimore beat former Portland Sea Dogs pitcher Chris Smith (0-3) for the second time in 12 days. Smith allowed five runs on six hits over 41/3 innings – his shortest start of the season. He was pulled after allowing Schoop’s three-run homer, which made it 5-1. Ryan Dull entered and was greeted with another homer by Jones.

Jed Lowrie homered for the A’s, and Boog Powell’s first career homer in the eighth pulled Oakland to within 6-3.

Welington Castillo responded for Baltimore with a solo home run in the eighth off Michael Brady.

WHITE SOX 7, TWINS 6: Yolmer Sanchez homered and drove in four runs, Jose Abreu hit his 25th of the season and Chicago held to beat visiting Minnesota in the first game of a doubleheader

Carlos Rodon (2-4) pitched effectively into the seventh inning for the fifth straight outing to earn his first win since July 3. The left-hander allowed two runs and four hits in 61/3 innings and struck out nine.

Jorge Polanco hit a three-run homer for the Twins off Derek Holland to cut the deficit to 7-6 in the eighth, when play was delayed by rain for 19 minutes. Holland, who has struggled in 24 starts this season, was charged with three runs in one-third of an inning during his second relief appearance.

Juan Minaya worked a perfect ninth for his third save.

Avisail Garcia had three hits and two RBI for AL-worst Chicago, which has won 3 of 4. Abreu doubled and extended his hitting streak to 10 games. He became the first White Sox player to hit 25 or more home runs in each of his first four seasons.

Eduardo Escobar, Eddie Rosario and Byron Buxton each drove in a run for Minnesota, which had won four straight and entered tied with the Los Angeles Angels for the second AL wild card.


MARINERS 6, BRAVES 5: Andrew Albers worked into the sixth inning for his second straight win since coming up from the minors, leading Seattle to a win in Atlanta.

Albers (2-0) also had the first hit and RBI of his career – in his first big league at-bat.

The 31-year-old left-hander beat his former organization, having spent most of the season at the Braves’ Triple-A club. He went 12-3 but never got a call to the big leagues.

Instead, Albers was dealt to the Mariners for cash on Aug. 11. He was called up by Seattle to make a start four days later, working six strong innings in a 3-1 win over Baltimore.

Now, after going just over four years between major league victories, Albers has two wins in less than a week.

Mike Foltynewicz (10-9) has lost four of his last five starts for Atlanta.

A disputed play at the plate helped preserve the win for Seattle, which came into the night just 11/2 games out of an AL wild-card spot.

With the Braves trailing 6-2 in the sixth, a catcher’s interference call sparked a rally. Ozzie Albies hit a two-run triple over the head of center fielder Leonys Martin and scored on Dansby Swanson’s sacrifice fly. Pinch-hitter Lane Adams reached on an infield single, stole second and nearly scored on an infield dribbler that was bobbled by second baseman Robinson Cano, who threw home to get Adams. The Braves challenged the call, and while it looked as though Adams may have gotten a toe on the plate before he was tagged, replays weren’t definitive enough to overturn the call.
