Adam Jones, 2010 Topps Turkey Red #TR104
Last night he delivered the Orioles' first ninth-inning comeback win of 2011 with a 416-foot walkoff homer to dead center field off of Royals' closer Joakim Soria, and tonight he keyed an eight-run outburst in the fourth inning with a leadoff double and a subsequent two-run single. So far this month, Jones is batting .375 with a .423 on-base percentage and .523 slugging percentage. He has 8 doubles, a triple, a homer, and 14 RBI. In that span he's boosted his average from .218 to .297, and he leads the Birds with 28 RBI on the season. If he can keep this up, he just might be a two-time All-Star.
