The Red Sox defeated the Baltimore Orioles, 5-2, on Tuesday at Fenway Park.

But the game's drama revolved more around Orioles outfielder Adam Jones than runs scored.

Jones returned to the ballpark one day after he says he heard racist taunts from Boston fans and says someone in the stands threw a bag of peanuts at him.

WBUR's Shira Springer was at Tuesday's game and reports for Morning Edition.
