PITTSBURGH, June 21 (UPI) -- Garrett Jones ignited a 15-hit attack with a two-run single in the first inning Tuesday and the Pittsburgh Pirates went on to rout Baltimore 9-3.

Jose Tabata drove in runs with a double and a fielder's choice while Jose Harrison, Ronny Cedeno and Michael McKenry added two hits each for the Pirates.

Chris Resop (3-2) earned the victory in relief of James McDonald, who surrendered three runs on seven hits through 4 2/3 innings.

Baltimore's Jeremy Guthrie (2-9) was pounded for six runs (five earned) on 11 hits before being yanked after 6 1/3 frames.

Adam Jones clubbed a two-run homer and J.J Hardy added a solo shot to account for the Orioles' runs.
