Orioles outfielder Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with two home runs in last night’s 6-0 victory over the division rival Red Sox. The O’s are now 6-2 against the Sox on the season, including 4-1 at home. The lack of Red Sox fans at Camden Yards as of late prompted Adam Jones to tell MASN’s Steve Melewski that his team’s home turf “isn’t Fenway South anymore”.
As Zach Wilt notes, the Orioles have won 15 of their last 20 and 25 of their last 35 overall games against the Red Sox. Last night’s win, along with the Rays’ 10-6 victory over the Yankees, pushed the Red Sox down to second place in the AL East. The Orioles are in third place, 3.5 games behind the first-place Rays.
