"The Truth" Hurts (Eddie Guardado)

Adam Jones comes up big in the 10th and breaks a 3-3 tie with a two-run shot off of "Easy" Eddie Guardado to spark a 4 run rally (a four run cushion that George Sherrill nearly blew but that's another story...) and secure the third straight series victory for Baltimore.

I don't put a lot of stock in early season numbers as a rule but you have got to love the start that Adam Jones has gotten off to. A .375/.432/.688 line with 5 doubles, a triple, last night's homer and 8 RBI in as many games. Obviously, it's not sustainable but this is the best stretch of hitting Jones has had during his brief time in the majors. He had weeks that approached this kind of production last July, just before his injury, but it looks like Jones has taken another step forward in his development.

And that's "The Truth"!
