Something good did come out of the Orioles loss to the Red Sox last night. Adam Jones’ single in the bottom of the eighth off of Rich Hill extended the sluggers hit streak to thirteen games which ties a career high.
The O’s slugger is hitting .307 with 14 homers and 29 RBI this season. During the streak, Jones is hitting .353 with six home runs, a double and 12 RBI. He’s grounded into two double plays, one of which scored a run for the Birds.
The price tag to re-sign Jones continues to sky rocket as he makes a bid as the American League’s best center fielder. Right now you have to think he would start for the AL in the All-Star game.
The Orioles are 8-5 during Jones’ streak.
