"We're still afloat," Adam Jones said Tuesday. "It was a hell of a road trip. It was good to have a day off yesterday, but I think most of the guys are ready to play baseball. We're champing at the bit to get back on that field."
The Orioles played 20 of their first 32 games on the road. They go to Minnesota this weekend before finally getting a homestand -- taking on the Padres, Rays and Yankees in an eight-game stretch starting on May 14.
Entering Tuesday, the Orioles have the most road wins in the American League -- 12 -- and second-most in the Majors. Their 12-8 road record is a big reason they've maintained a strong position in the AL East so far this season.
