No ill-will between O's Jones, Guillen

No ill-will between O's Jones, Guillen

BALTIMORE -- A postgame report on a Baltimore Sun blog Wednesday night centered on an exchange of words between Orioles center fielder Adam Jones and White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen following Nolan Reimold's walk-off home run. Jones termed it as "part of the competition" on Wednesday and downplayed it again on Thursday before the series finale.

Guillen, who has as much fun as anyone during the course of a given game, said he was playfully getting on Jones during the course of the extra-innings loss. But he never even saw Jones after Reimold connected. In fact, Guillen never saw the ball land 436 feet away.

"As soon as the ball left the bat, I knew it was a home run and I left right away," said Guillen with a laugh. "I was right behind [bench coach] Joey [Cora]."

The situation wasn't closed out by Guillen on Thursday without one more comical shot at Jones, his Wednesday foil.

"What is he going to celebrate?" said Guillen with a wry smile. "Someone else did it."
