Jones, Olsen leave injured
WASHINGTON — Orioles outfielder Adam Jones left Friday’s game against the Nationals prior to the bottom of the fourth inning with cramping in his right leg.
Jones put Baltimore on the scoreboard in the second inning with his fourth homer of the year,
a two-run shot off Washington starter Scott Olsen’s first pitch. He walked in his second plate appearance in the third which is when he suffered the leg cramping . Olsen left the game after three innings with left shoulder tightness.
In a text message to MLB.com, Jones said the cramping was “nothing serious” and expected to be in Saturday’s game.
Left fielder Corey Patterson assumed center field duties in Jones’ absence, with Lou Montanez filling in at the corner outfield spot.
At the time of the injury, Jones was batting .254 with 12 RBIs.
