When Tampa Bay picked up Drew Smyly as part of a three-team package that sent its ace David Price to Detroit, there were some rumblings about whether the Rays had gotten enough return in the deal. So far, Smyly has made Tampa Bay look smart … again. Smyly allowed just one run on two hits over seven innings, leading the Rays to a 3-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night.

In one play, Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones bested the Tampa Bay Rays twice. And it was quite pretty. In the sixth inning Monday night, Rays star Evan Longoria hit a deep fly ball to center. Jones sized up it, jumped at the wall, reached over and caught the ball. No homer for you, Mr. Longoria. But that was only the first part of Jones’ great play. He was alert enough afterward to spot Matt Joyce trying to tag up from first base. Sometimes the trade off for making a great catch in the outfielder is runners advancing on the bases. Not Joyce. Jones fired the ball in and nailed him at second base. We see a lot of double plays, but not many that require as much effort as Jones displayed here.
