ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Adam Jones hit a pair of solo homers and Jonathan Schoop launched a tiebreaking, two-run shot that sent the Baltimore Orioles over the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Schoop’s drive in the seventh inning off Brandon Gomes (2-2) put the Orioles ahead 4-2.

Jones hit leadoff homers in both the second and fourth off Cesar Ramos. It was his fourth multihomer game.

David DeJesus homered for the Rays, who have dropped the first two games of a three-game series and are 0-4 overall against the Orioles this season.

Ryan Webb (1-0) went 1 1-3 scoreless innings for the win. Tommy Hunter struggled for the second straight game, pitching the ninth for his 10th save.
