MINNEAPOLIS — Ubaldo Jimenez struck out a season-high 10 for his first win with Baltimore. Jimenez, who signed a $50 million, four-year deal during spring training, allowed 20 earned runs over his first five starts. His ERA dropped from 6.59 to 5.19, and he now is 4-3 with a 2.45 ERA against the Twins. Nelson Cruz's two-run homer in the sixth made it 3-0. It came one batter after Manny Machado's single, his first hit after Thursday's return from offseason knee surgery. The Orioles' are a season-high three games above .500.
