By NOAH TRISTER/AP Baseball Writer

DETROIT (AP) – J.J. Hardy and Adam Jones homered off Justin Verlander, and Manny Machado added a double and two sparkling plays at third base to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.

Hardy hit his third homer off Verlander (8-5) this month, connecting for a two-run shot in the fourth inning, and Jones added a three-run drive in the fifth.

Zach Britton (1-1) allowed a run and five hits in 5 1-3 innings after being called up earlier in the day from the minors to make this start.

Four Baltimore relievers finished. Jim Johnson pitched the ninth for his 26th save in 30 chances.

Verlander gave up five runs and seven hits in five innings. He walked four and struck out five.
