By David Ginsburg/AP

Miguel Gonzalez and two relievers combined on a six-hitter, and the Baltimore Orioles capitalized on two infield singles by Adam Jones in a 3-0 victory over the punchless Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday.

Nick Markakis also had two hits for the Orioles, who outscored the Rays 10-1 in the rain-abbreviated, two-game series. Baltimore has won five of seven to reach .500 (7-7) for the first time since the second game of the season.

Playing at designated hitter instead of center field after returning from an illness, Jones reached on a bunt in a' two-run fourth inning and drove in a run with a 50-foot chop down the third-base line in the fifth.

Gonzalez (1-1) gave up three hits and three walks in five innings after coming in with a 9.64 ERA. Zach Britton permitted two singles over three innings to keep his ERA at 0.00, and Tommy Hunter got three outs for his fourth save.
