NEW YORK -- Orioles center fielder Adam Jones was scratched from Baltimore's lineup against the New York Yankees on Wednesday because of a strained right hip.

He was replaced atop Baltimore's lineup by shortstop Julio Lugo. Lou Montanez took Jones' spot in the field and batted ninth against the Yankees.

The night before, Jones dived and missed a liner hit by New York's Francisco Cervelli, allowing the backup catcher to reach third for his first career triple.
