It's always something: Orioles lose a run on another strange play

It wasn’t an unprecedented defensive play like the rare 1-2-5 double play that bailed the Orioles out of Sunday’s game at Yankee Stadium, but the call that cost the O’s a run in the fifth inning Monday night was another in a series of strange twists that have impacted the team for better or worse over the past four days.

Jones came up with the bases loaded and hit a comebacker to Toronto Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ, who threw the ball to catcher Russell Martin to get a force play at the plate. Martin then threw the ball toward first base, but his throw caromed off Jones’ back and bounced into center field to allow a run and, apparently, tie the game at 2.

That is, until home...
