Adam Jones out of Orioles lineup tonight

Adam Jones is out of the Orioles lineup tonight after returning to it yesterday.

Jones missed five games with back spasms. Gerardo Parra is replacing him tonight in center field.

Ryan Flaherty is starting in right field.

The Orioles are attempting tonight to avoid setting the franchise record for most consecutive scoreless innings at 33 set in 1957. They've been shut out in three straight games and haven't scored in their last 28 innings.

Chris Tillman will become the 16th Orioles starting pitcher since 1954 to record three seasons or more of at least 30 starts while winning 10 or more games. Wei-Yin Chen accomplished the feat in his last start.

The Orioles lead the majors with 46 outfield assists. Jones leads the team and is tied for fifth in the majors with 13.
