Chris Davis hit a two-run double, scoring Nelson Cruz in his Orioles debut and helping Baltimore beat the Toronto Blue Jays 9-7 on Saturday.

Cruz, who signed with the Orioles on Monday, walked and scored from first on Davis' double.

In his first game of the spring, Davis, who led the majors with 53 home runs last season, was 1 for 3.

Toronto starter Drew Hutchison, competing for the fifth starter's job, struck out four in two scoreless innings.

Miguel Gonzalez gave up one run on three hits in two innings for Baltimore.

The Orioles overcame a 7-2 deficit when they scored seven runs in the eighth. The big hits were a bases-loaded triple by Francisco Peguero and a two-run single by Xavier Paul.
