Home Run Derby: Orioles' Adam Jones eliminated in second round against Yoenis Cespedes

Elsa

Adam Jones advanced into the second round of the Home Run Derby by hitting four in the first round, but he fell to Yoenis Cespedes in their head-to-head matchup. Cespedes moved on with nine home runs, while Jones only had three.

The Orioles' Adam Jones made it out of the first round in Monday's Home Run Derby, but that was all the farther that he would get. In his second round matchup, he was matched against the buzzsaw that is Yoenis Cespedes, who hit nine home runs in the round. Jones hit three home runs in the second round, a respectable showing, just not enough.

In the first round of the Derby, Jones hit four home runs. That was good for second place among the AL hitters in the round, ahead of Cespedes, Josh Donaldson, and Brian Dozier. The bottom two hitters in each league were dropped after one round.

With a total of seven home runs for Jones across the two rounds, that means that fans can get $7 off select lower level seats for the July 29-31 series against the Angels. Read the link for details; the discount code is not supposed to be activated until 15 minutes after the Derby ends.

Jones was vying to be the first Oriole to win the Home Run Derby since Miguel Tejada won the contest in 2004. He would have only been the third O's winner of the Derby, with Cal Ripken also winning in 1991. Chris Davis, who participated in last year's Derby, also advanced to the second round, but not beyond.
