Orioles 8, Mariners 7:
Adam Jones drilled a bases-loaded single with one out in the bottom of the 14th inning to lift Baltimore to its fourth consecutive victory.

Jones’ hit capped a comeback from a 7-2 deficit and improved the Orioles’ record to 5-0 this season when playing 13 or more innings.

Omar Quintanilla began the decisive inning by reaching on an infield hit when Seattle first baseman Mike Carp was unable to keep his foot on the bag while stretching to reach the throw of second baseman Dustin Ackley. Mariners manager Eric Wedge was ejected while disputing the call.

Nick Markakis followed with his fourth hit of the game and J.J. Hardy;s sacrifice moved both runners up a base. Shawn Kelley (2-3) walked Chris Davis intentionally before Jones ended the 4-hour, 55-minute marathon with a bullet that Casper Wells was unable to grab.

Darren O’Day (6-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the Orioles, who had 15 hits.

Baltimore recovered from two five-run deficits and eventually tied the game with a four-run seventh. Quintanilla had a run-scoring single, and two batters later, Hardy blasted a three-run homer off Lucas Luetge.

Kyle Seager hit a three-run homer for Seattle and Miguel Olivo added a second-inning solo shot to help the Mariners jump out to a 5-0 lead against Orioles starter Zach Britton.

Matt Wieters slugged two solo homers off Mariners starter Blake Beavan. His first came in the second inning and Markakis had a run-scoring single later in the frame to cut Seattle’s lead to 5-2.

The Mariners increased the lead back to five runs in the sixth on run-scoring singles by Carp and Ackley.

Wieters, who had three hits, homered again in the sixth to pull Baltimore within 7-3.

Beavan allowed four runs and seven hits in six-plus innings. Britton allowed seven runs (four earned) and eight hits in five-plus innings.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Seattle finished with 18 hits. … Baltimore has won 12 consecutive extra-inning games. … Montero had three hits, marking the eighth time he’s had three or more this season. … Markakis has seven multi-hit outings over his last 12 games. … Mariners SS Brendan Ryan (elbow) missed his third straight game. … Britton has allowed 20 runs (17 earned) in 13 1/3 innings over his last three starts.
