Orioles Adam Jones records 1,000th hit

After an RBI ground out in the first inning, Adam Jones was still sitting at 999 hits.

In the bottom of the third, Jones hit number 1,000 in a very unconventional manner against Mark Buehrle and the Blue Jays. Jones dribbled a grounder to new shortstop Jonathan Diaz, who had replaced Ryan Goins, who had replaced Maicer Izturis at second, who left the game because of a knee sprain. Diaz double clutched the throw and Jones ended up being safe. Because Diaz never lost control of the ball, the play was ruled a single. That was Jones’ 1,000th hit.

Jones was stranded on second after Chris Davis was hit by a pitch and Matt Wieters struck out to end the inning.
