In what was a huge night for Adam Jones, the former Orioles outfielder went 3-for-4, including a double and RBI.
During his postgame interview with Fox Sports Arizona, Jarrod Dyson pied Adam Jones with a key lime pie. Such pie celebrations were a hallmark of Jones' tenure in Baltimore.
“He swung the bat well against us tonight,” Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said. "You look at his career numbers, obviously, he’s had a really productive career. He’s a tough out, and hurt us tonight, big-time.”
“He was very instrumental in their win tonight,” Trey Mancini, outfielder and teammate with Jones for three seasons, said. “I’ve seen him do that a lot when we played together, so it wasn’t as fun to be on the other side of it.”
When asked if he keeps track of the Orioles performance, Jones replied "I keep track of baseball . . . I keep track of what's going on, especially with my friends. I definitely keep track of what's going on with Schoop, Britton, Machado obviously I get to see him a lot more often, guys that are my good friends I keep track of . . . I've reached out to Trey, kept in contact with Gyvens, reach out to Bleier here and there. I think bigger than the game is friendships."
