Twins blow late lead 11 May 16

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Jones broke out of a long slump in a big way, delivering the go-ahead, two-run single in the ninth inning after a towering homer in the fifth to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-3 victory over the skidding Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

Manny Machado also went deep while going 3 for 3 with two walks to raise his batting average to .365, and Zach Britton earned his eighth save for the Orioles. Kevin Jepsen (2-4) intentionally walked Machado in the ninth to get to Jones, who made him pay.

Trevor Plouffe homered and drove in three runs for the Twins, who have lost six straight games. Jose Berrios gave up three runs on eight hits and struck out six in five innings.
