SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Ryan Flaherty hit a three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Baltimore Orioles an 11-10 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.

The Orioles blew a 6-1 lead when the Blue Jays scored a run in the fifth, two in the sixth and three in the seventh.

Baltimore reliever Daniel McCutchen gave up five runs and seven hits in 1 1-3 innings.

Mark Buehrle, as the Blue Jays' third starter behind R.A. Dickey and Josh Johnson, allowed Nolan Reimold's leadoff home run in the first in his two innings.

Jason Hammel, a likely candidate to start opening day for Baltimore, allowed five hits in 2 1-3 innings.
