Adam Jones' HR vs. Mariano Rivera to avoid sweep (July 7)

With Mariano Rivera entering the game in the top of the ninth, the Orioles were facing their third consecutive one-run loss to the New York Yankees -- and fourth overall after losing to the Chicago White Sox, 3-2, in the game before that series. But after Nick Markakis reached base with a one-out single, Jones hit a two-run, go-ahead home run to left-center field. Jim Johnson, who blew a save in the first game of that series, retired the side in order in the bottom of the ninth for his 30th save. Adam Hunger, Reuters
