Gwinnett’s Matt Jones, who made the final out last night to seal Chris Tillman’s no-hitter, belted a three-run homer off Jake Arrieta in the fourth inning.
It was fun while it lasted.
Arrieta had allowed one earned run in 28 innings until the fourth.
Left-hander Brian Matusz could use better luck, and a lineup that’s missing Robinson Cano.
The Orioles need to pitch around that guy. He began the night batting .390, and his seventh home run increased New York’s lead to 2-0 in the fourth.
Matusz has allowed six hits over four innings, but few of them have been scorched. Bloopers count, too.
The Orioles have managed two hits off A.J. Burnett - singles by Ty Wigginton and Adam Jones.
Nick Markakis made a spectacular diving catch to rob Mark Teixeira in the third.
