Cardinals beat Orioles 8-3 to avoid sweep

BALTIMORE (AP) - Rookie Kolten Wong had four hits and scored twice, Peter Bourjos homered and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-3 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.

     After allowing nine home runs in losing the first two games of the series by a collective 22-5 score, the Cardinals amassed a season-high 17 hits - 14 of them singles.

     Bourjos capped the barrage with a three-run drive in the ninth off Zach Britton, ending the left-hander's run of 27 straight scoreless appearances at home.

     Wong's four hits, all of them singles, matched a career high and lifted his batting average 11 points to .253.
