Adam Jones giveth, taketh away

Adam Jones had a chance at a highlight reel catch for the second straight night on Tuesday, but instead he wound up losing his glove and his breath on a leap at the wall. Jones, who had robbed Kevin Youkilis of a home run Monday night, had a chance to reprise his feat Tuesday.

This time, though, Jones lost his glove over the wall and wound up in a heap on the warning track. Jones wound up playing another inning before the Orioles lifted him due to precautionary reasons. Manager Dave Trembley had compared Jones to Gold Glove outfielder Torii Hunter before the game in reference to his ability to make leaping plays at the wall.

Felix Pie replaced Jones, who is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday.
