Jones leaves game (updated)

After driving in a run to give the Orioles a 1-0 lead in the top of the first today at Chicago, Adam Jones did not take the field in the bottom of the first.

Jones left with what is called a “mild mid back muscle spasm,” and was replaced by Felix Pie.

MASN replays showed Jones grabbing at his back during his first-inning at bat.

Jones entered today in an 0 for 13 slump and batting just .130 over his last 12 games. He lined a single to left in the first to score Brian Roberts, who had doubled.

Jones began today batting .281-19-69 on the year.
