Orioles lose challenge as Jones picked off in 11th

BALTIMORE -- The Orioles watched the 11th inning against the Angels end on Thursday night on a reviewed pickoff play involving Adam Jones that stood as originally called.

Jones, who reached with a two-out single, took a big lead with Nelson Cruz at the plate and dove back to the first-base bag as Albert Pujols applied the tag with his glove. Jones was called out and immediately showed his displeasure. First-base coach Wayne Kirby started arguing as manager Buck Showalter jogged out to the field.

After a review of 2-minutes, 33-seconds, the call stood as the third out of the inning, sending the game to the 12th.

"He never tagged him," Showalter said. "I don't know what they're looking at. I think we lead the league in [call] stands. A paranoid man would worry more about it, an alert man would wonder about it. I do. It's pretty obvious to us. I hope they didn't have the same look we had."
