BALTIMORE – Orioles fans are used to great things from Adam Jones. One of the most popular of all Orioles, and a fixture in center field, Jones continues to have his struggles. 

He came to the plate in the first inning with the Orioles trailing 3-2 and a runner on first base, but Jones hit into a 6-4-3 double play. 

It was the eighth double play Jones has hit into in 91 at-bats. Four of them have come on this 10-game homestand, and he’s now tied with Boston’s Dustin Pedroia for the major league lead.

Last year, Jones hit into a career-high 21 double plays. 

Jones entered the game with a .200 average and just one home run—none at home. 

Last month, Jones missed a week’s worth of at-bats with a rib cage injury, and his home run came on Apr. 15 at Texas.
