Two home runs, both opposite-field shots, in one game, a big win over a division rival -- that's something to be celebrated in a special way.
That's just what the Baltimore Orioles did for Adam Jones on Friday after he clubbed a pair of homers to right field in a 6-0 win over the Boston Red Sox .
Two "pies" to the face during the All-Star center fielder's postgame interview didn't come from other players, but instead from first-base coach Wayne Kirby and hitting coach Jim Presley. The latter even waited patiently for Jones to wipe off his face from the first round before nailing him a second time.
Did Jones seem a little irked? He did say something about how Kirby had violated pie protocol by not leaving Jones with a towel. After all, Jones knows something about proper delivery of the postgame pie.
You get the idea. If an Oriole is going to get a creamy facial while being interviewed on TV, Jones invariably will be one of the guys doing the deed.
