BALTIMORE -- The Orioles had a home run call stand in the fifth inning, helping increase their lead over the Twins on Friday night.

After Adam Jones singled in a run, Delmon Young drove a pitch off Twins rookie Trevor May that had just enough carry to sail into the left-field stands.

Twins left fielder Jordan Schafer, who made a fantastic effort in crashing into the wall in hopes of corralling it, watched a fan reach over and grab the ball before it had a chance to clear the park. While the fan didn't interfere with Schafer, it was enough to draw a crew chief review.

After a quick review, the call stood, with Young credited with his seventh homer of the season.

"That's a joke," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "That's embarrassing, because the system didn't work tonight. The guy reached over the fence and caught the ball."
