Now, I've seen it all.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones just gave the Orioles a 4-2 lead with a two-run, inside-the-park homer in the top of the fourth inning. It was the Orioles' first inside-the-park homer since David Newhan connected for one on July 21, 2004 against the Boston Red Sox's Pedro Martinez at Fenway Park.

It also wasn't your typical inside-the-park homer as Washington Nationals' center fielder Nyjer Morgan thought he had knocked the ball over the fence, and he slammed in glove in disgust. The problem was the ball popped out of his glove and was still rolling behind him when he was throwing his temper tantrum. Nationals left fielder Josh Willingham came over, retrieved the ball and threw it back in, but Jones slid in home safely for his second homer in as many days.

Morgan, who was booed soundly by the crowd, did just get a single to give the Nationals men on first and third with two outs, and Cristian Guzman followed with an RBI single to cut the Orioles' lead to 4-3.
