SAN DIEGO (AP) — Adam Jones tied his career-high with four hits, including a home run, drove in two runs and scored twice against his hometown Padres as the Baltimore Orioles beat San Diego 4-1 Tuesday night.

Bud Norris won his second straight start since joining the Orioles, holding San Diego to one run and five hits in six innings.

Jones homered into the balcony on the second level of the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse in the left field corner at Petco Park leading off the fourth off Edinson Volquez. It was his 23rd.

Jones singled in the first to bring in Nate McClouth, aboard on a leadoff double. He singled and scored on Chris Davis' double in the eighth.

Jones, who went to San Diego's Morse High, hit a two-run homer when the Orioles visited Petco Park in 2010.

Norris (8-9) struck out five and walked two.

Jim Johnson pitched the ninth for his 39th save, tops in the majors.

The Padres had three straight singles to open the sixth, including Yonder Alonso's RBI base hit that pulled San Diego to 2-1. Norris then retired the side on a strikeout, a fly ball and a popup, stranding runners at second and third.

San Diego's Will Venable tripled leading off the first and was stranded as Norris retired the side on two groundouts and a strikeout.

Norris was obtained in a trade with Houston last Wednesday The next day, he beat the Astros 6-3 at Camden Yards.

Volquez (9-8) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings, struck out six and walked two.

NOTES: Padres All-Star SS Everth Cabrera addressed the team before the game, a day after he was suspended for 50 games by MLB for his relationship to Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. Cabrera admitted Monday to taking a banned substance for four days in the spring of 2012. He didn't identify the substance. Chase Headley said Cabrera was emotional in front of his teammates, as he was in speaking before the media on Monday. "He obviously feels bad about it," Headley said. "That's a tough thing to deal with, so I think it's a positive that he addressed the team and I guess that's the first step to moving on." ... To take Cabrera's roster spot, the Padres promoted INF Ronny Cedeno from Single-A Lake Elsinore. Cedeno was signed to a minor league contract on Saturday and played games for Lake Elsinore. ... Logan Forsythe started at SS for the Padres on Tuesday night. ... The two-game series concludes Wednesday when Orioles RHP Miguel Gonzalez (8-5, 3.88) is scheduled to face San Diego LHP Eric Stults (8-10, 3.55).
