Outfielders: A-

Orioles outfielders also did it all last week, putting up big run-production numbers and making some huge defensive plays to help the club wriggle out of some tough situations. Adam Jones, pictured, remained hot, hitting safely in all seven games and batting .423 with two home runs and five RBIs. Nelson Cruz only played two games in left field, but his five-hit game Saturday boosted the overall numbers, as did Steve Pearce's 5-for-15 performance with four RBIs in his three outfield starts. David Lough only made one late-inning appearance, but he earned two gold stars Sunday for hitting a leadoff triple in the 12th inning, scoring the decisive run and throwing out David Ortiz from left field to help Zach Britton record the save. Nick Markakis also delivered some table-setting hits, though he batted only .226 (7-for-31). Overall, the Orioles in the outfield batted .345 with 16 runs and 13 RBIs. <b>Grade: A-</b>
