OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Adam Jones matched his career high of five RBIs to back Wei-Yin Chen, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Oakland Athletics 8-4 on Saturday night.

Jones hit a three-run home run in the first and had a two-run single in the fourth. Baltimore's All-Star center fielder also walked and scored in the third.

Nick Markakis added four hits, while Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy also homered for the AL East-leading Orioles.

Chen (10-3) allowed three runs over five innings with four strikeouts in an uneven outing while winning his third consecutive start. The left-hander improved to 4-0 in five career starts against the A's.

Brandon Moss hit his team-leading 22nd home run for Oakland.
