April 26, 2013 at 1:34 AM

OAKLAND, Calif., April 26 (UPI) -- Adam Jones had three of Baltimore's 15 hits Thursday and scored twice in an offensive outburst that carried the Orioles to a 10-2 win over Oakland.

The Athletics lost for the sixth time in seven games.

Baltimore overcame an early two-run deficit with a three-run third that featured an RBI double by Jones and the Orioles piled on seven runs in a four-inning stretch beginning with the fifth.

Nick Markakis contributed a run-scoring single in the third and a sacrifice fly in the fifth. Chris Davis drove in two runs with a sixth-inning homer and a base hit in the eighth.

Jason Hammel (3-1) benefited from the offense to get the easy win. He allowed only three hits and two unearned runs in six innings.

Baltimore roughed up starter Jarrod Parker (0-4) for six runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.
