Adam Jones came through with a serious web gem on Monday night to ensure the Tampa Bay Rays would not make a comeback on his Baltimore Orioles.
Baltimore hit five home runs in a 9-1 win — including back-to-back-to-back homers in the fifth — and Jones kept up the momentum on defense. The center fielder went far over the fence to rob Evan Longoria of what would have been a 3-run homer in the sixth.
As if that weren’t already enough, he alertly threw into second base to get Matt Joyce, who was trying to tag up and advance from first.
It’s amazing what Jones can do in the field when he’s not trying to blow bubbles with his gum.
