Jones leaves game with sore right shoulder
Orioles center fielder Adam Jones was removed from the game before the bottom of the fourth inning with a sore right shoulder.
It's far too early to speculate on the severity of it at this point. Jones went 0-for-2, flying out to shallow right field in the first and lining out to left field in the third.
When the Orioles took the field for the bottom of the fourth, Nolan Reimold ran out to left field and Felix Pie moved over to center.
Meanwhile, the Orioles just scored four times in the top of the fifth to take a 4-1 lead against the Oakland Athletics. They loaded the bases on J.J. Hardy's infield single, Mark Reynolds' single and then Robert Andino's bunt.
Oakland pitcher Guillermo Moscoso fielded Andino's bunt and threw to third base and replays showed that Hardy was out by half of a step, but third base umpire Chad Fairchild gave the Orioles the call, loading the bases with no outs.
Felix Pie tied the game at one on a single that just popped up out of the glove of diving center fielder Coco Crisp. Reimold gave the Orioles the lead with a bases-loaded walk, and then the visitors scored two more on back-to-back RBI groundouts from Nick Markakis and Vladimir Guerrero.
