TORONTO -- Orioles center fielder Adam Jones was a late scratch again from the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre due to a sore ankle.
It is the second game in a row Jones has missed with the injury. He fouled a pitch off his left ankle in Friday's game and it swelled up.
He was in the original lineup for Saturday's game, but was a late scratch. It was considered prudent to give him the day off with the game being played on artificial turf and it was a day game after a night game.
He was again in the original lineup for Sunday's game and took batting practice. Later, the decision was made not to play him.
Matt Angle again moved to center field from left field. Nolan Reimold played left field.
Kevin Gregg's blown save on Saturday ended a string of 21 2/3 scoreless innings by the Orioles bullpen. Gregg allowed two runs in the ninth on Saturday in the Blue Jays' 5-4 win.
Left-hander Zach Britton will make his 25th start of the season and 12th start at home on Monday against the Tampa Bay Rays. It will be his fourth start against Tampa Bay. He is 2-1 with a 3.12 ERA in his three starts against the Rays, including a win on Sept. 2 in St. Petersburg.
Entering Sunday's game, the Orioles ranked third in the Majors in home runs since June 1 with 118 and were fifth for the season with 166.
Center fielder Adam Jones, who missed his second game on Sunday with a sore ankle, is in a 6-for-55 (.109) drought with two doubles and a home run in his past 16 games.
Designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero was batting .522 (12-for-23) with four doubles and a home run in his six games before Sunday.
