Jones' Jack Lifts O's In 12th

It took 12 innings, but the Birds took down the Phillies 6-4 in front of a sell-out crowd at Camden Yards on Saturday evening.

Adam Jones broke out of an 0-for-18 slump with a single in the ninth before launching a walk-off two run bomb in the bottom of the 12th. It was Jones' team-leading 17th long ball of the season; 11 of his homers have either tied a game or given the Birds a lead.

Tommy Hunter's return from Triple-A was a success...Hunter went seven innings, walked none and allowed just three runs (all solo homers). The 'pen allowed just a run on five hits over the final five frames.

The Birds have now split the series with Philadelphia and look to take the rubber-game this afternoon behind Jason Hammel.
