DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays tagged Dana Eveland, then roughed up Alfredo Simon in beating the Baltimore Orioles 9-3 Wednesday.
Eveland allowed three runs and six hits in four innings.
Simon, pitching for the first time in 10 days since leaving a game with a pulled groin, gave up three runs on two hits in the
fifth, one scoring on a wild pitch. He yielded three more runs in the fourth on four hits, including Chris Woodward’s double.
Ryan Flaherty’s two-run single put the Orioles on top 2-1 in the third. Eric Thames’ two-run double in the bottom half gave the Blue Jays the lead for good.
J.C. Arencibia had two hits for Toronto. Jason Esposito had two hits for the Orioles.
