BALTIMORE (AP) -- Adam Jones had two hits and two RBIs in an eight-run fourth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals 9-2 Wednesday night for their fourth straight victory.

Baltimore sent 13 batters to the plate in the fourth against Luke Hochevar (3-5), who yielded six hits, walked three and threw a wild pitch. It was the Orioles' biggest inning since an eight-run sixth against Washington on June 26, 2009.

After beating the Nationals twice over the weekend and taking the first two games of this three-game series, Baltimore is riding its longest winning streak since opening the season 4-0.
