TORONTO — The Orioles are 3-3 after losing to the Twins on Sunday and have dropped two straight one-run games. That had center fielder Adam Jones fired up about playing the Red Sox on Monday.
“It’s important,” Jones told reporters in Baltimore about the team's need to platy well at Fenway Park. “You’ve seen the last couple days, you look on the scoreboard today. They had 13 runs and they put them up quick, too. I think they are swinging the bats. We’ve got to go out there ... and spoil their Opening Day."
That Fenway will be sold out matters not to Jones.
"The more people, the more you want to shut them up. That’s how I look at it. I don’t care, they can stand up the whole game. They do anyway. But when you can silence 40,000 people, it’s pretty cool," he said.
