SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- Adam Jones hit his first two home runs of the spring, J.J. Hardy homered and drove in four and Wilson Betemit also had RBIs before leaving with a knee injury as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 12-9 Monday.

Jones, who missed more than two weeks of spring training while playing in the World Baseball Classic, was 1 for 19 before his first home run. He also singled.

Hardy was batting .114 before the game, and he had two doubles and the home run.

Betemit had a three-run home run and sacrifice fly before spraining a ligament in his right knee in the fifth.

Orioles Rule 5 draft pick T.J. McFarland allowed four runs and eight hits in 3 2-3 innings.
