ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Adam Jones got four hits, including a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2 to win a series shifted from Camden Yards.

Playing as the home team, the Orioles took two of three at Tropicana Field. The games were moved earlier in the week when rioting broke out in Baltimore following the funeral of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody after suffering a spinal cord injury.

Jimmy Paredes’ RBI double with two outs made it 2-all in the bottom of the seventh. Jones was up next and he delivered a two-run single, tying his career high for hits in a game.

Tommy Hunter (1-1) threw a perfect seventh for the win. Zach Britton pitched 1 1-3 innings to get his fifth save.

Steve Geltz (1-1) allowed two runs in one inning.
