"All During Season" "I'm very sorry he thinks that," the big right-hander said. "I tried to pitch inside and the ball got away from me. I didn't try to hit him. I don't pitch at anybody. I'm very sorry he feelr that way." Jones, out of bed but still held in the hospital, said, "That guy deliberately threw at me. He did it my first time up." Jones got a walk in a previous appearance against Newcombe. Jones said that Newcombe throws "close enough to malce me move out. He does it all during the regular season."

He said Jones had suffered a perforated eardrum but the bleeding from the ear has stopped.
