DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Chris Tillman allowed two runs and didn't make it out of the second inning in Tuesday's shaky spring debut for the Baltimore Orioles, who tied the Toronto Blue Jays 6-6.
The former All-Star served up four hits in the first, including a second-pitch leadoff double to Kevin Pillar and RBI singles to Jose Bautista and Chris Colabello.
The right-hander then yielded a double to prospect Darrell Ceciliani to open the second and consecutive two-out walks to AL MVP Josh Donaldson and Bautista before being lifted with the bases loaded.
Tillman, who missed two weeks recovering from a strained flexor muscle in his right hip, gave up five hits, walked three and struck out one.
Pedro Alvarez drove in a run for the Orioles with a single off Toronto starter Jesse Chavez in the first. And Baltimore's Alfredo Marte hit a two-run homer in the eighth as part of a four-run inning.
Dalton Pompey tied it on a solo shot in the ninth for the Blue Jays.
