Adam Jones hit a go-ahead home run in the top of the eighth inning as the Orioles beat the Mariners 2-1 Wednesday afternoon, and it might not have been his most impressive play of the day -- or season, for that matter. Mariners catcher Miguel Olivo led off the bottom of the fourth inning with a deep drive to center field that had extra bases written all over it. Jones had other ideas. He made an over-the-shoulder catch with about one foot to spare before having to climb up the wall to avoid injury.

Pretty impressive all around day for Jones. He had the catch and the home run and was also 3-4 at the plate, raising his batting average to .291. Jones leads the Orioles with 30 RBI, and his home run tied him for the Orioles lead with Mark Reynolds (7).
Still, I'd cast my vote for the catch when considering his best work to date.
