"I feel like I threw the fastball the same way last time. Didn't get a few calls. Put the ball in play a little more, obviously. I was happy with it," Miley said.

Gentry, who is trying to make the Orioles as an extra outfielder, also singled and scored in the first. Seth Smith, who had been 0-for-10, homered in the fifth inning.

Toronto's Mat Latos was removed after two innings. He allowed five runs on three hits and walked three. Despite the result, Latos was satisfied with his pitches.

"I feel great," he said. "The ball's coming out of my hand, everything, fastball. I'm not reeling back and letting it go, letting it go right now. I'm trying to really concentrate on keeping my mechanics steady with everything and just really work downhill.

Manager John Gibbons was satisfied with Latos's performance.

"Solid," Gibbons said. "I think he did get frustrated with the ump though and started scattering a little bit more. His style of throwing, he's going to get a wide variance. The big breaking curveball, he throws a lot of balls up in the zone, he's going to spike some of them. Not necessarily an easy guy to call back there, but I thought he really squeezed him."

Blue Jays Up Next: The Blue Jays host the Phillies on Thursday at 1:05 p.m. ET. Left-hander Francisco Liriano is scheduled to make his second start of the spring. The game can be seen on MLB.TV or listen to an exclusive webcast.
