Jones give O’s the lead; Gonzo’s outing

I just returned to the press box after talking to Chris Tillman near the bullpen area.

Adam Jones homered to right field off Daniel McCutchen to give the Orioles a 2-1 lead in the third inning. That’s nine homers in three games for the Orioles.

Mike Gonzalez allowed a run on two hits and a walk in the top of the third. He also struck out a batter.

Gonzalez could have gotten through the inning unscathed. Garrett Atkins couldn’t run down Ronny Cedeno’s pop up in shallow right field that fell for a single. He also was late chasing a foul pop near the stands, and Blake Davis overran the ball.

That should have been two outs.

Neil Walker walked and Cedeno stole third to put runners on the corners with no outs. John Raynor struck out, but Aki Iwamura lined an RBI single to center.

Jim Johnson will pitch the fourth inning.
