Center fielder Adam Jones, who propelled the Orioles to their surreal victory on Sunday with a three-run home run in the 17th inning, isn't ready to project his team's terrific early-season performance beyond the current four-game series against the Texas Rangers.
"Not worried about it,'' he said. "We've got to win today's game because tomorrow's game isn't here and any other day isn't here. Today's May 7 ... pretty much the only day that's circled on our calendar."
Pressed on the fact that the Orioles were set to enter Monday night's game with the best record in the major leagues, he conceded that it beats the alternative -- something the Orioles know a little bit about.
"It's better than being on the other end of the stick,'' Jones said, "but we're just trying to play our own game and mind our own business. Just play for today, not tomorrow."Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
