The Orioles edged the Twins at Target Field on Wednesday night. Adam Jones provided for all of Baltimore's offense with a two-run homer to left off Francisco Liriano in the top of the first. And the recently recalled Tommy Hunter made the early lead stand up. The right-hander improved to 4-4 on the year by tossing seven-and-one-third innings of one-run ball while O's closer Jim Johnson picked up his 27th save in 29 chances as Baltimore hung on for the 2-1 road win.
