Latos surrenders five earned runs in two innings as Orioles beat Blue Jays

Blue Jays' Latos rocked in first spring start

SARASOTA, Fla. — Mat Latos game up five earned runs over two innings, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-4 in pre-season baseball action Wednesday.

Latos, making his first Grapefruit League start of the season, surrendered a three-run homer to Craig Gentry in the second inning after allowing a Mark Trumbo RBI single and a Hyun Soo Kim sacrifice fly in the first.

Latos, who signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays last month, allowed three hits and walked three batters without recording a strikeout.

Baltimore’s Seth Smith added a solo shot off Toronto’s Joe Biagini in the fifth inning. Wade Miley pitched three scoreless innings for the win.

Lourdes Gurriel led Toronto’s offence with a three-run homer off Tyler Wilson in the seventh. Anthony Alford picked up his third RBI of the spring with a one-run single in the sixth.
