BALTIMORE (AP) - Adam Jones hit two home runs, Gerardo Parra had five of Baltimore's 26 hits, and the Orioles breezed past the Oakland Athletics 18-2 Sunday.

After winning the first two games of the series with game-ending homers, Baltimore enjoyed a pressure-free blowout at the expense of a free-falling Oakland team that has lost six straight and 16 of 23.

The 26 hits matched a franchise record, set on Aug. 28, 1980, against the Angels.

Homers by Parra and Jones off Kendall Graveman (6-9) helped put Baltimore up 6-1 in the third, and a nine-run, 10-hit fifth inning erased any lingering suspense.
