BALTIMORE, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Adam Jones blasted a go-ahead, three-run homer in the sixth inning Saturday and the Baltimore Orioles went on to post a 6-2 win over Toronto.

Trailing 2-0 in the sixth, the O's erupted for four runs to take control.

Nolan Reimold led off with a single, went to second on Blake Davis' hit and scored when Yunel Escobar couldn't handle Robert Andino's grounder.

One out later, Jones sent an 0-1 pitch over the right-field wall for a three-run shot.

The blast made a winner of Chris Tillman (3-4), who held the Blue Jays to two runs on four hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out five.

Toronto's Brandon Morrow (8-6) was tagged with the loss, yielding six runs (three earned) on four hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Colby Rasmus socked a solo homer for the Blue Jays.
