BALTIMORE -- Adam Jones is locked in early for the Orioles, and he's mashing in particular at Camden Yards. The center fielder, who hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the O's 6-5 loss to the Yankees on Monday, said he's trying to not overthink things.
"I've never asked the why, just live with the results," said Jones, who is 10-for-14 (.714) with three homers, a double, seven runs and seven RBIs in four games at Camden. "I'm not going to say I'm doing this or doing that. Just being aggressive and trying to find good pitches to hit."
With Monday's blast, Jones moved into sole possession of second place on the Oriole Park all-time home run list (92), passing Brady Anderson. He trails only Rafael Palmeiro with 124.
"There's going to be ebb and flow to the season, and the good players are not going to be perfect every night, but Adam's in a good spot right now and is putting a lot of good swings," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "And some of the balls he's not squaring up are finding holes, too. That was a big blow there to get us where he got us, but it kind of see-sawed back and forth."
