NEW YORK (AP) In the thick of the AL playoff races, the Baltimore Orioles lost a key player at an inopportune time.
Star center fielder Adam Jones left Friday's game at Yankee Stadium in the second inning with a left hamstring strain. Although the seriousness of the injury was downplayed by his manager and the five-time All-Star himself, it's unclear if this could be a lingering problem that could haunt his club down the stretch.
"See where we are tomorrow," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. "It's not a DL thing. I think we're still in pretty good shape."
