Adam Jones homers in ninth to keep Buffaloes alive in Japan Series

Adam Jones spoiled the title celebration the Tokyo Yakult Swallows were planning to have on manager Shingo Takatsu’s birthday, but he did give his fellow former major leaguer a gift.

A ticket to Kobe for Game 6.

Jones hit a tiebreaking pinch-hit home run to lead off the top of the ninth and the Orix Buffaloes avoided elimination with a 6-5 win over the Tokyo Yakult Swallows in Game 5 of the Japan Series at Tokyo Dome on Thursday night.

“I’m just trying to do anything I can to help the team, and I’m glad I finally was able to come through,” Jones said.

Jones drew a walk that helped spark the Buffaloes’ three-run rally in the bottom of the ninth in Game 1, but struck out swinging in his next three pinch-hit appearances Games 2, 3 and 4. He went to the plate to start the ninth against Yakult closer Scott McGough on Thursday with Tokyo Dome still rocking after Tetsuto Yamada’s game-tying three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth.
