Yesterday we took a look at Adam Jones’ successes in different spots throughout the Orioles lineup. If you missed the article, I basically concluded that Jones has seen a lot of success in the two spot, but that if the Orioles can afford to keep him low, his numbers will shine.
In a different looking lineup against 2010 Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez, Adam Jones hit sixth behind Luke Scott and ahead of Matt Wieters. Jones went 4 for 4, with a triple and 2 RBI.
His four hits were no fluke. Adam Jones is hitting .700 in 10 at bats against his former team. He has two doubles, a triple and five RBI against the Mariners this series.
May has been Jones’ month. In 10 games this month, Adam Jones is hitting .436 with two runs, 7 RBI and .564 slugging percentage. Jones has improved his batting average to .286 on the season after hitting .218 in April.
