Orioles center fielder Adam Jones¿ dramatic two-run homer off Mariano Rivera in the top of the ninth on Sunday afternoon, giving the O¿s a much-needed 2-1 win to salvage a win in this weekend's series at Yankee Stadium, was his fifth homer in the ninth inning or later to give the Orioles a lead since the beginning of the 2012 season.
There's no wonder why. Jones has delivered in the clutch this season. Even during his biggest slump of the season -- Jones snapped a 0-for-18 slump with a ninth-inning single -- he still wanted to be aggressive at the plate.
Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold is scheduled to undergo an epidural injection in his sore neck, but it appears very doubtful that he¿ll be ready to come off the disabled list as soon as he becomes eligible Wednesday.
Orioles designated hitter Chris Davis pitched two scoreless innings as the O's beat the Red Sox in 17 innings. Adam Jones' three-run homer in the 17th gave the Orioles a 9-6 edge over Boston and their first series sweep at Fenway Park since 1994.
