And it's been like that since the beginning of the season. In the team's 18 games, the 3-4-5 hitters are batting .356 with 18 doubles, 14 homers, 43 runs scored and 47 RBIs.
Jones and Davis, in particular, continue to tear up opposing pitching. Between the two of them, they're batting .380 with 14 doubles, 10 homers, 28 runs scored and 36 RBIs since the beginning of the season. Let Davis snap all the bats he wants.
But that didn't do a whole lot to cheer up Jones when Sunday's game was over.

"It's always good when you're swinging the bats," the center fielder said. "But we want the win. There's been days when the bottom of the lineup picks us up ... today the middle of the lineup did good.
"But we need the full balance. We need everybody. We want the whole team to hit. Obviously that's not gonna happen every night, but that's what we strive for."
They didn't get that Sunday. And they didn't get what they needed out of Jake Arrieta.
But it was way too early for doom-and-gloom. And no one knew that better than Adam Jones.
