Watching via Gamecast how did Roberts score from first on a single?

Markakis hit to the gap, cut off by Hunter, Roberts hustling and made a nifty play to avoid the catcher's tag (too hard to explain the "slide", would have to see it).

Roberts was running on the pitch, he was already around second before the ball landed in the outfield. He got to the plate as the relay came in but he sort of did a hop step schimmy around Mathis and then dove back towards the plate and barely scraped it with his left hand. Excellent, excellent base running from Roberts, as usual.

Like I said elswhere, Kakes resting on 66 laurels. Didn't get to second on the play to the plate...

Curious question I'm hesitant to ask.

Jones is a really smart guy and seemed to be paying close attention to the catcher while he was on second in the first inning. Fast forward to the third inning with Markakis now on second. Huff was just ALL OVER the pitch he hit for a 3 run homer.

So the question. Did Jones pick up the signals in the first inning, and did Markakis signal Huff?

Seems a little far fetched and I'm not tivo-ing so I can't check closer. How often does this kind of thing happen? I just remember wondering if Jones was trying to pick up signals while he was on second. Next time we have someone on second, BAM! Just curious.
